Papers of a North Carolina Baptist minister concerned with civil rights, civil liberties, ecumenism, and the Vietnam War, mainly consisting of correspondence, writings, and an alphabetical subject file. Correspondence, which is chiefly outgoing, forms two-thirds of the collection and dates primarily from the mid 1960s to the mid 1970s. Much of it is routine pastoral mail, but there are letters which touch on Finlator's social and political activism. Writings include articles, addresses, book reviews, invocations, letters to editors, broadcast commentaries, a few sermons, and related correspondence and clippings. These deal with ecumenism, labor relations, prison reform, prayer in public schools, prohibition, and Billy Graham. Most noteworthy among the subject files which are made up of additional correspondence, clippings, reports, writings, and printed matter, are those pertaining to the Baptist State Convention, the North Carolina Civil Liberties Union, the North Carolina Council of Churches, and North Carolina Advisory Committee to the U. S. Commission on Civil Rights, prisoners, and the Raleigh Committee of Clergymen Concerned with Vietnam.
