Description

At a meeting of the consistory of the First Reformed Church at which Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte presided and Gerrit Wakker served as clerk, it was noted that Nagelkerk was still difficult to deal with. He was separated from his wife and did not attend services. The consistory decided to censure him publicly. People in two other bad marriages were reported on. Van Raalte would not be in the pulpit Sunday and a replacement was needed.

About the collection:

Elton J. Bruins, long-time professor in the Department of Religion at Hope College, spent years collecting documents by and about Albertus C. Van Raalte, founder of Holland, Michigan and early patron of Hope College. Documents were gathered from dozens of public and private collections, making a nearly exhaustive collection of Van Raalte's writings and reflections. It is these documents that make up the "Van Raalte Papers."
