The Ellen G. White Estate is an organization created by the last will and testament of Ellen G. White to act as her agent in the custody of her writings. Since Ellen G. White's death in 1915, the Ellen G. White Estate has sought to make available her writings as broadly as possible. This has been accomplished through the publication of books, the translation of Ellen White materials, and the establishment of research centers around the world. Additionally, the Ellen G. White Estate seeks to promote an understanding of Ellen G. White's life and work and the history of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
The Ellen G. White Estate is located at the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists in Silver Spring, Maryland, but it is a separate corporation operated by a Board of Trustees. The Loma Linda Office of the Ellen G. White Estate is one of two branch offices. The Loma Linda Branch Office, while administratively separate, works closely with the Department of Archives and Special Collections, and together they form the Heritage Research Center for Loma Linda University. As a branch office, Loma Linda has available a complete collection of Ellen White's published and unpublished writings.
