Exceptional items: Folder 1-2 contains an unfinished book manuscript about Percy Crawford's life, "A Pioneer for God: The Biography of Percy Crawford." The author is not indicated and apparently it was never published. The last chapter listed in the table of contents, about the Crawford's trip to Korea in 1953-1954, is not included in the manuscript. Material in folders 1-4, 1-8 and 1-12 was probably used as research material for the book.

The diary gives a very interesting day by day description of the tour. The cover shows Percy preaching to a large indoor crowd, possibly in Moody Church.
