This collection contains announcements, annual reports, applications, architectural drawings and specifications, brochures, bulletins, constitutions, contracts, correspondence, handbooks, manuals, membership lists, minutes, programs, scrapbooks, time reports, and work plans. The records document the activities of the office from 1903 to 1989. From 1908 to 1974, the office of Religious Affairs was nearly synonymous with the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA), as the records indicate. Hence, the collection also includes the records of the Danforth Chapel from 1955 to 1976, the International Student Center from 1955 to 1965, and the Self-Help Bureau from 1932 to 1941.

The Office of Religious Affairs grew out of the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) and the leadership of Edward S. King, who served North Carolina State College (later North Carolina State University) through the YMCA from 1919 to 1955. The campus branch of the YMCA was established in 1889 and was the site of the following activities and events: regular Sunday services; Bible study classes; a published montly paper; a handbook for freshmen and prospective students; speakers and discussion groups; a game room for students; a barbershop; and the Self-Help Bureau, which helped students secure employment while in college. The YMCA branch existed on campus until 1982.

Biographical/historical note

The Office of Religious Affairs grew out of the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) and the leadership of Edward S. King, who served North Carolina State College (later North Carolina State University) through the YMCA from 1919 to 1955. In the fall of 1889 a branch of the YMCA was established on the campus. The YMCA conducted regular Sunday services and Bible study classes, published a monthly paper and a handbook for freshmen and prospective students, and brought carefully chosen and nationally known speakers to the campus. Members of the YMCA gave programs at neighboring colleges and representatives were sent to the annual Southern Student Conference near Asheville and to various other student volunteer conferences. Other activities and services of the YMCA included the provision of a game room for students, a barbershop, and the Self-Help Bureau, which helped students secure employment while in college. Members of this organization met new students at the depot and escorted them to the campus with the intention of becoming the students' servant, friend, and moral guide. The YMCA branch existed on campus until 1982.

In 1975, a copper box was found in the cornerstone of the King Religious Center (also known as the YMCA), where it had been for around sixty years. The contents of this time capsule are primarily documents from the early years of the YMCA and are in this collection.

Affiliates 1947-1970

The YMCA building and its staff were involved with more than religious services and retreats. At one time or another, the YMCA had a working relationship with a barber shop, the Bar Jonah Coffee House, Hopeline Crisis telephone service, the McKimmon Residence Village, the Presbyterian Campus Chirstian Life Center, Vetville and its community center, and the International Student Center.

This series contains a variety of records that document these relationships from 1947 to 1970 and includes contracts, reports, bulletins, posters, and correspondence.

There are meeting minutes, committee reports, and student questionnaires in these folders.

Cooperative Campus Ministry 1922-1989

The records in this series document the activies of the Cooperative Campus Ministry (CCM) from 1922 to 1989. The Chaplains' Cooperative Ministry (formerly the Cooperative Campus Ministry) at North Carolina State University is an interfaith organization which both supports individual programs of faith and plans jointly sponsored campus ministries for students, faculty, and staff. Its members, both ordained and non-ordained, strive to be leaders within the University as inquiry, dialogue, development, and truth are pursued with trust at all levels. Each member group, while not denying its own beliefs, is willing to cooperate with and support the other members as they develop their own communities. Its members pledge to respect the established religious convictions of all individuals and to avoid language and behavior whose real or perceived purpose is to pressure or deter persons who are already committed to living out their chosen faith heritage.

Of particular note is the folder entitled "Human Relations," which refers to interracial tensions in the Raleigh area during the 1950s and 1960s. This folder contains correspondence and essays that respond to the lunch counter sit-in movement. More immediate to NCSU, this folder contains records in response to international students from African and Middle Eastern countries being denied admission to Chapel Hill's Varisty Theater.

General YMCA records 1907-1983

These records document the activities of the YMCA at North Carolina State University from 1907 to 1983. The records include the constitution of the NCSU YMCA, certificate of incorporation, correspondence with alumni, memorandum, newsletters, programs, agendas, time capsule memorabilia, and essays.

The YMCA was a voluntary organization that was controlled by the students under the direction of a general secretary, who was employed with funds subscribed by the Board of Directors. On December 8, 1905, the Board appropriated $300.00 to employ a full-time Y secretary. The first general secretary, E. R. Walton, served for two years. He was succeeded by John W. Bergthold in 1908.

A copper box was recovered from the King Religious Center (also known as the YMCA) cornerstone, in 1975 after a respite of nearly sixty years. This time capsule was found to contain numerous items relating to the college. These items (including) were put in the University Memorabilia collection but then transferred to this collection.

The records address a range of topics including guidance for young men during the Vietnam War draft about concientious objectors and appeals, a folder entitled "Student Revolutions" which documents student and faculty reactions towards criticisms of "in loco parentis" rules in universities, as well as the general internal documents of the YMCA.

Self-Help Bureau 1928-1943

The Self-Help Bureau, which was a subsidiary of the campus YMCA, helped students secure employment while in college. Particularly in the 1930s due to the Great Depression, students had to leave the university in alarming numbers due to financial hardship. The Self-Help Bureau appropriated funds and/or set students up with jobs through the following New Deal-era programs: Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA), National Youth Administration (NYA), Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), and Public Works Administration (PWA).

The FERA was a Roosevelt Administration relief program enacted in 1933 and terminated in 1935. FERA was the first direct-relief operation under the New Deal. This relief effort emphasized work and its main goal was to alleviate adult unemployment. In order to achieve this goal, FERA provided state assistance for the unemployed and their families. From when it began in May 1933 until it closed its operations in December 1935, it gave states and localities $3.1 billion to operate local work projects and transient programs. The records from FERA in this collection include: newsletters, applications, departmental time allotments, statistics, and other internal records.

The NYA also operated out of Self Help office of the YMCA. The primary purpose of the NYA was to help high school and college students from low-income families to stay in school by giving them part-time paid work.

The TVA was created in 1933 to provide navigation, flood control, electricity generation, fertilizer manufacturing, and economic development in the Tennessee Valley, a region particularly affected by the Great Depression. The records in this folder document the TVA's recruting efforts of high-achieving NCSU students from 1934 to 1936.

The PWA concentrated on the construction of large-scale public works such as dams and bridges, with the goal of providing employment, stabilizing purchasing power, and contributing to a revival of American industry. There is one cicular (number 144) from this organization from 1935 in this collection.
