This book collection was purchased by the French Department at Bates College from the Dominican Monastery in Lewiston, Maine and given to the Library.  It complements both the Freewill Baptist Collection with its important early 19th century texts on missionary experience in India and Africa, and the Rice Collection with its predominantly French texts.  In addition, the religious orientation of the collection complements the predominantly religious orientation of the Rare Books Collection.  This purchase also has allowed Bates to play a key role in preserving an important library in the Lewiston community.

Palm-Leaf Manuscripts

 

background

Rev. Benjamin Burleigh Smith (1820-1873) was a Freewill Baptist missionary who established a church in Balasore, on the east coast of India in the Orissa state. The collection is comprised of five full or partial palm leaf manuscripts of Shastras, sacred Hindu scriptures. The manuscripts are drawn with a steel stylus on palm leafs, with black ink rubbed over them to highlight the letters. They are in the Oriya script, and probably in either the Sanskrit or Oriya language. Some or all of the manuscripts were copied by Smith’s Brahmin pundit, or philosopher-teacher, between 1853 and 1862.

Jonathan Woodman Diary

 

background

Jonathan Woodman, a Freewill Baptist pastor and evangelist, was born March 27, 1798. He was one of nine individuals who established The Morning Star, the denomination's newspaper, in 1825, and he eventually became a proprietor, trustee, and corporator of that printing establishment. In 1828 he gave the opening prayer at the first General Conference. He was the first president of the Anti-Slavery Society, 1843; president of the Home Mission Society, 1840; and president of the Foreign Mission Society, 1848-1850. He sat for two terms on the Vermont Legislature. In addition, he was minister in various Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts parishes. His first wife, Charlotte Jackson, died in 1832. His second wife, Mercy Eaton, died in 1877. He had four children. He died in January 1888.

In 1847 Rev. Jonathan Woodman and Rev. Eli Noyes were elected by the Freewill Baptist General Conference as delegates to the General Baptists in England. In 1848, Woodman traveled to England. This diary was written by Woodman during his travels through England, beginning with his departure from East Boston on April 15, 1848. Woodman met with Rev. Jabez Burns and Rev. Joseph Goadby, and visited several General Baptist churches in London. He also attended Baptist Missionary meetings and temperance meetings, and he met with members of the British Anti-Slavery Society. Woodman was invited to deliver sermons before several congregations. On July 13th, he received a letter which informed him of his son's struggle with tuberculosis. The journal ends two entries later.

Friends Historical Collection

 

background

The Friends Historical Collection, located in Hege Library at Guilford College, is the center for the study of Quaker history in the Southeast, with particular emphasis on North Carolina. The collection includes the written records of Carolina Friends from 1680 to the present, printed and microfilmed copies of other Friends records, personal and family papers, the college archives, printed materials by and about Friends worldwide, and sources for the study of Quaker family history.  North Carolina Friends have officially served as missionaries in several countries, including one individual in India.  Several North Carolina Friends served in Cuba and in Palestine over the years so work in these areas is better documented through original documents and photographs in the Friends Historical Collection. 

 

access/use restrictions

The collection is open to Guilford students and faculty, Friends, visiting scholars, and genealogical researchers.  Appointments are encouraged for researchers wishing to consult manuscript collections.  Most published holdings, including specialized serials, are available whenever the college library is open.
