Student Papers

Over the years, the editors of this report and people on this website’s Speakers Bureau have assisted scores of students in secondary schools, colleges and universities, and graduate programs in their research into different aspects of Peoples Temple history. Beginning this year, we are publishing some of the papers which have come out of that research. The papers will also be collected and published at the bottom of the Articles page.
