Special Collections: Mary E. Moxcey


Dr. Mary Eliza Moxcey (1875-1970), a significant figure in twentieth-century religious education, conducted leadership training workshops for the YWCA for many years and wrote widely used leadership manuals and other educational works for girls and young women. She was a long-time editor for The Methodist Book Concern, wrote a great deal of Sunday School curriculum material, and led training workshops for Sunday School teachers and other religious educators across the country. During the 1920s and 1930s, Dr. Moxcey also did radio broadcasts of Sunday School lessons, sponsored by The Methodist Book Concern. The Moxcey Papers include extensive personal and professional correspondence spanning her lifetime, and manuscripts and typescripts of her books, lectures, and radio broadcasts.

Dr. Moxcey's collection has been transferred to the Methodist General Archives in Madison, New Jersey.
