Nick Goutziers: A Life of Blessings from Pain
In the latest issue of the Joint Archives of Holland Quarterly newsletter two Hope College students present their latest research. Charlyn Pelter writes about the journey of a teenager from war-torn Rotterdam, the Netherlands, to Holland, Michigan. Jillian Nichols presents her research about a local girl who became an important influence in the Reformed Church in America's medical missionary movement to Amoy, China, in the early part of the 20th century.

The Joint Archives of Holland administers Hope College's records retention program overseeing transfer, storage, preservation, reference use of inactive records, and timely destruction of outdated records.
The large collection of oral histories housed at the Joint Archives of Holland was initiated in 1977 with the help of Dr. Elton Bruins of Hope College and continued as a summer project until 2003. Along the way, many other interviews have also been recorded as opportunities arose. Click here to see the list of available interviews.
