The Reformed Presbyterian Historical Archives, which are located at the Seminary in Pittsburgh, already have many interesting and precious historical items which have been donated over
years.  While the collection continues to grow as people clean out attics, files and cupboards, there are still some things on our “wish list”.  We thought we would circulate the following list with the hope that our collection might be enhanced.  Obviously some of the items in the below list are one of a kind while others are of a continuing nature.
