The John D. Nutting Collection contains the personal library and papers of Rev. John D. Nutting of Cleveland, Ohio. Rev. Nutting was a pastor, missions official, and missionary to Mormons. This collection includes pro and contra-Mormon material, some dating from the nineteenth century.
The collection is organized into eleven series: Biographical, Correspondence, Manuscripts, Maps, Newspapers and Articles (1877-1919), Anti-Mormon Pamphlets, Periodicals, Utah Gospel Mission, Nutting Family Materials, Secondary and Collection-related Materials.
Biographical materials relate to Nuttings time at Wheaton College, from which he graduated in 1870. His mother, Sarah, and his sister, Ruth, were on faculty in Art at Wheaton.
Correspondence is between Nutting and Mrs. France Carothers Blanchard. Charles Blanchard was an instructor of Nutting, and later president of Wheaton College. The correspondence dates from 1882-1883.
Manuscript material includes essays, bible lessons and notes and poetry.
A large portion of the collection is devoted to published material from newsclippings and articles to periodicals and anti-Mormon pamphlets. These materials date from 1877-1947.
