Biographical history

Michael Collison was a student at Regent College from 1991 until his graduation in the Spring of 1999. His research on the early years of Regent College was intended to be for a Master of Theology thesis, but after the death of his first wife, Valerie, this research was abbreviated. A substantial amount of that research was submitted as a comprehensive paper, to fulfill the requirements for a Master of Christian Studies degree.

Custodial history

This fonds was compiled as the working research for Michael’s thesis, and then comprehensive paper. It was donated to Regent College, in the care of Librarian Ivan Goetz in 2001.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of photocopied materials, personal notes, transcripts, personal correspondence and historical correspondence. The fonds is divided into three series: Research files, audio materials and research index cards.
