Earle Jewell was born in Arlington, Iowa, but grew up in Minnesota, graduating from Winona High School in 1915. He graduated from the Minnesota State Teachers College in Winona, taught a year on the faculty, and then worked for the YMCA. During W.W.I, Jewell was an artillery instruments instructor at Camp Zachary Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky. After the war, Jewell did mission work for five years and then headed a church in Sauk Center, Minnesota. Rev. Jewell became the Rector of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1938 and retired in 1964. He and his wife, Elsie Barton Jewell of Chicago (b. March 18, 1900), had three children, David, Barton, and Barbara. He was a member of the Kiwanis, Mercury and Rotary Clubs. After his retirement, they moved to Forsyth, Missouri, and in 1979, they moved to Mountain Home, Arkansas.

Sermons in folders 1-5 were delivered by Jewell weekly on the WDAF radio station, and many are missing from the series. The papers also contain some correspondence, materials (including photographs) related to St. Andrew's and St. Peter's Episcopal Churches, and publications written by Jewell. 1914-1977.
