The Presbyterian Church had an interest in missions from its formation. Their focus was proclaimed at the General Assembly of 1847, to aid in the conversion of the world. They began with ministry to the Indians in the United States, and extended to countries all over the world. The papers include manuscript letters, newspaper clippings, financial reports, reports of meetings and extracts from books or pamphlets. The mission work of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. Board of Foreign Missions is well-documented for the countries of India, China, Iran, Syria, Japan, Korea, Siam, Latin America, the Philippines and Africa. Also of interest are records of the Gaboon and Corisco Mission and the West Africa Mission. Originals owned by the Presbyterian Historical Society, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. All rights reserved.
