CHURCH MISSIONARY SOCIETY ARCHIVE
Section III: Central Records
Part 17: CMS Minutes, 1876-1898, and Indexes to Minutes, 1875-1907
Part 17 returns to the microfilm coverage of the CMS Minutes (which began with Sections III, Parts 7-9). Here we have the Minutes for 1876-1898 and the Indexes to Minutes for 1875-1907. The Minutes of the various CMS Committees are entered in chronological order and cover:
- Children’s Home Visitors.
- Correspondence (including communications from major figures outside of the CMS such as the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Bishop of London).
- Finance and Funds.
- Home Organisation.
- Islington College Visitors.
“The CMS Archive is among the most heavily used of our special collections, with over a hundred researchers consulting it each year. I am delighted that it is now to be made available on microfilm.”
