The Richard Foster Papers include manuscripts, writings, research materials, schedules of speaking engagements, interviews, invitations, calendars, brochures, correspondence, photographs, recordings, and media from Foster’s writing and speaking career. The bulk of these materials are records from his many speaking engagements both domestic and abroad. These materials tell about his speaking career, writing process, development of ideas, and teaching. They give insight into the character and mind of Foster as he developed some of his most famous works, spoke all over the world in churches, colleges, and universities, taught and counseled others. Some of the collection is from his time as a professor at Azusa Pacific University. This collection is especially useful for research on the life and theology of Richard Foster.
