Abstract: This paper is concerned with the existence of solutions of two point boundary value problems for functional differential equations. Specifically, we consider

$\displaystyle y'(t) = L(t,{y_t}) + f(t,{y_t}),\quad M{y_a} + N{y_b} = \psi ,$

where M and N are linear operators on $ C[0,h]$. Growth conditions are imposed on f to obtain the existence of solutions. This result is then specialized to the case where $ L(t,{y_t}) = A(t)y(t)$, that is, when the reduced linear equation is an ordinary rather than a functional differential equation. Several examples are discussed to illustrate the results.
