The McLean County Clergy Staff / Ministerial Association
The McLean County Clergy Staff / Ministerial Association Collection was donated on September 1998 by Donald K. Nester, who was a Chaplain affiliated with BroMenn Healthcare. In the late 1960s, several clergy in McLean County met with administrators of the three local hospitals and some local physicians to clarify and enhance the role of clergy in the hospitals. They wanted to form a group that would focus on the participation of clergy as part of the health care team and to work on fostering understanding and cooperation among physicians, hospital staff, and clergy.
The McLean County Clergy Staff / Ministerial Association Collection consists both of public and private materials that come from a time period that begins in the mid-1950s and goes until the late 1990s.
