Introduction

The notes on the Thornton Chase Papers were created to gather information for The Bahá'í Faith in America, Volumes 1 and 2, and an unpublished biography of Thornton Chase (available online). The notes were originally taken in pencil on 3 by 5 cards in the archives; later when photocopies of documents were reread, the notes were amplified. In 1985 they were typed into a computer in WordStar, and subsequently when I used the Thornton Chase Papers or photocopied documents from the collection, I added further notes to the files. Notes on the Spiritual Assembly of Kenosha and Racine Records; the New York City, Washington, D.C. and Jersey City Bahá'í Archives; and personal papers of various other people (such as Sarah Farmer and Helen Goodall) were created in the same fashion.
