Report from the California Historical Society

We have had a very quiet year here, with only one new addition to the Peoples Temple Collection: the papers of Ross E. Case, minister, who joined Peoples Temple in 1961 as a “Visiting Minister.” He ended his relationship with Jim Jones in 1964. The collection includes mainly ephemera and publications of Peoples Temple, the bulk of which is related to the years he was affiliated with them. The collection is currently unprocessed.
