John Stott Papers

Correspondence, travel diaries, photographs and organisation files relating to the life and work of John Stott (1921-2011), the rector of All Souls, Langham Place (1950-1975), Chaplain to the Queen (1959-1991), and prominent evangelical leader. Stott was also the author of around fifty books, including ‘Issues Facing Christians Today’ and the series entitled ‘The Bible Speaks Today’, primarily written at his rural retreat on the Pembrokeshire coast.
