Moody Bible Institute History

Records and documents of the Chicago Evangelization Society comprise some of the earliest sources that chronicle the beginnings of the Institute from 1886–1899. 

Institute History

The Institute began as part of the Chicago Evangelization Society under the name of The Bible Institute for Home and Foreign Missions but was renamed Moody Bible Institute following the death of D.L. Moody. 

The collection houses records and information documenting the growth and activities of the various departments of MBI including the Education, Alumni, and President's Offices.  The Archives also houses collections for Moody Press, Moody Radio, Moody Monthly, and the Moody Institute of Science.
