The son of Nazarene missionaries in Africa, Dayhoff studied at the University of Witwatersrand (B.A. 1948), Asbury Theological
Seminary (B.D. 1951), and the University of South Africa (D.Th. 1980). His D.Th. dissertation was entitled “The Message of
Holiness of the Church of the Nazarene Among the Northern Sotho People.” In addition to the African prosopography material,
the collection documents the life and ministry of Paul Stanley and Margaret Lillian Stark Dayhoff, including published materials,
unpublished materials and labeled photographs in both digital and paper formats. The collection also contains items published
by his father Irwin E. Dayhoff.
