P. Boyd Smith Hymnal Collection

This collection of more than 400 hymnals was a gift to Baylor from California Baptist University, home of a larger P. Boyd Smith Hymnology Collection. Smith was the first president of CBU; the collection was originally donated by his son, S. E. Boyd Smith, who was a founding member of the music faculty. The hymnals are all from the 19th and 20th centuries, dating as far back as 1825.
