Scope and content

File consists of a blank form to apply for a thesis (with spaces for a title and supervisors); a thesis proposal typed on Prof. Dr. J.J.G. Prick's letterhead including a summary of the paper, but this is likely a draft as there are a few typographical errors; a draft for a doctoral thesis proposal with annotations and corrections by Nouwen; a letter from the Social Sciences Faculty at University of Nijmegen written by the Dean of Faculty, O. Schreuder, which outlines Nouwen's Thesis director (Professor Prick), the title of the thesis (De betekenis van Anton T. Boisen's acute psychose in verband met zijn vraag naar de verhouding tussen geestesziekte en religieuze bekering [The significance of Anton T. Boisen's acute psychosis related to his question about the relationship between mental illness and religious conversion]). The letter goes on to say the thesis defense date has yet to be set, and the committee will consist of Dr. W.J. Berger (Pastoral Psychology), Prof. Dr. K.J.M. van de Loo (Clinical Psychology), and Prof. Dr. F. Haarsma (Pastoral Theologian).
File also includes a letter to Nouwen regarding his request for the appointment of a thesis director for his PhD. They sent him a candidate's guideline for a PhD thesis.
