Robert A. McKibben papers
Rev. Dr. Robert A. McKibben was Executive Director of the All Nations Foundation and Pastor of the Church of All Nations in Los Angeles from 1927 until 1952, when he resigned reluctantly to accept appointment by the Methodist Episcopal Church to its National Board of Missions. McKibben's correspondence relating to the All Nations Foundation, including his uniquely effective fund raising letters, and his papers on church social work programs, are to be found with the records of that agency. Papers in this collection reflect his wide interests, his acquaintance with leading social welfare administrators throughout the West, and his national and international connections with social work associations, particularly those concerned with the developing specialty of group work, and with issues from the provision of services to youth, to narcotics education, and international student exchange programs. An influential figure in Los Angeles, McKibben was president of the Los Angeles County Coordinating Council's Executive Board, and a Vice-President of the Council of Social Agencies, on whose Executive Committee he served for many years.
