After the 1968 resignation of college archivist Janet Mulder, the temporary care of college archival materials was undertaken by Dr. Elton Bruins until the 1970 formation of the Hope College Archives Council. Committee members included Elton Bruins, chair; Dr. Jacob E. Nyenhuis, Provost; Jon J. Huisken, David P. Jensen, G. Larry Penrose, Janet Mielke Pinkham, and Larry J. Wagenaar. The council was effectively disbanded after the formation of the Joint Archives of Holland, a combination of three large institutional collections that include Hope College, Western Seminary, and the Holland Museum. Collection includes the Guide to the Archives of Hope College, 1972; Guide to the Dutch-American Historical Collections of Western Michigan (1967); minutes, clippings, and correspondence.
