Section III: Central Records

Part 14: CMS Collection of Lives of Missionaries held at the Church Mission Society Library, London

The lives of missionaries included in this part are from the Max Warren Library at the Church Mission Society Library, London. The books consist of biographical works on both male and female CMS missionaries. Part 14 covers missionaries L-Y whilst Part 13 addressed those missionaries whose initials began with A-L.

The books are for the majority written for adults, some of them by wives or husbands of missionaries and some by professional authors. There are also some small books written by the CMS themselves. There are also a few books written for the younger audience.

The contents of the books are mixed, some being merely a story of the life and work of the missionary, but others with interesting extracts from the missionary's letters and journals. A considerable number also contain photographs and maps.

The biographies give us a fascinating insight into the work of the missionaries and the lives of the people they worked among. There is much on itineration in the missions and the evangelical side of the work as well as details of local customs, traditions, homes, dress and religious practices.
