The papers of Jessie Penn-Lewis occupies approximately .5 linear feet and highlights the correspondence, writing and travels of Penn-Lewis. The collection is organized into two major series, Correspondence and Publications. Each of these series is sub-divided even further into a half-dozen sub-series each.
Correspondence is the largest portion of the collection and covers a time period of 1900 to 1922. Correspondence sent and received is represented, as well as secondary correspondence and fragments. There is a portion of materials relating to Rev. H. S. Kimura, a noted Japanese evangelist.
Publications are various and focus upon church-related matters, as well as education-related and speaking engagements. Some of the materials in this series are more ephemeral or secondary and not necessarily publications by Penn-Lewis.
