THE ICA GLOBAL ARCHIVES
Discover the rich heritage of The Ecumenical Institute/Institute of Cultural Affairs and its role in global human development since 1959. The ICA Global Archives provides access to this historical data and other research resources. All are welcome to explore the unique story and the people who shaped it.
Collections of ICA’s work include:
In Memory of Marge Philbrook
In Memory of Marjorie Helen Smith Philbrook June 10, 1928- May 19, 2020
As part of the celebration of Marge's life, ICA is currently collecting donations to the Archives in her name.
Marge was a co-founder of the Global Archives Project in 2009. She was instrumental in modernizing the work, from taking an online course in archiving and leading efforts to digitize the collections to helping found the Archives Advisory Committee and launch the twice annual Sojourns.
"Remember to tell someone and remember …. You’re the Greatest."
In Memory of Jean Long
As longtime ICA colleague, Jean dedicated her recent years to the organization and cultivation of our archival history. She was the touchstone for many who contributed their time to the Archives and championed the efforts vigorously in staff meetings and weekly conference calls with remote colleagues.
A memorial was held at the ICA building in 2019. Read about it here.
