[1] Information on conferences 19551982 is mostly taken from Rosemary Rodgers, A History of the College Theology Society (Villanova, PA: College Theology Society, 1983), 109110. From 1970 onward, except for 1978, the conference theme can be identified (though not always verbatim) from the title of the Annual Volume. Themes for 195569 and 1978 are from Rodgers. Information on volumes for those years is mostly from Sandra Yocum Mize, Joining the Revolution in Theology: The College Theology Society, 19542004 (Lanham, MD: Rowman and Littlefield, 2007).

[2] The CTS held its 1972 annual convention in conjunction with the International Congress of Learned Societies in the Field of Religion, and CTS activities may not have been limited to the Century Plaza Hotel.
