    Moral Re-armament (MRA) was a global social and spiritual movement organized by Reverend Frank Buchman. The collection documents MRA activities, facilities, and visits with the public, royal dignitaries, celebrities, and political figures for events and productions around the world. The group included members of numerous denominations and races. Supporters of the organization included prominent African American civil rights leader Mary McLeod Bethune and the group's membership also included celebrities such as tennis star H.W. "Bunny" Austin and various figures of political and international prominence such as Burmese President and Secretary-General of the United Nations U Thant and former first Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany Konrad Adenauer. MRA was prolific in its production of film, theatrical, radio, and print entertainment thanks to members like Peter Howard and Alan Thornhill who scored, wrote, and directed many of the MRA productions. MRA produced many feature films such as The Crowning Experience, Decision at Midnight, and Freedom that featured actors and singers such as Martin Landau, Muriel Smith and Cecil Broadhurst, as well as many theatrical productions such as Space Is So Startling, The Drugstore Revolution, and The Tiger. MRA's international presence included regional offices, production studios, and headquarters across the country and the world, primarily on Mackinac Island, Michigan where the organization filmed and produced many of their productions. MRA also hosted large events at its estate in Caux, Switzerland.
