KOREAN MISSION RECORDS:
Papers of the Korean Mission, 1889-1987, from Birmingham University Library

Part 1: Minute Books, Ledgers and Correspondence with Mission Staff, 1908-1986

The Korean Mission was founded in 1889 and its records provide a unique opportunity to look at the tumultuous history of Korea from 1889 to 1987 through the eyes of western missionaries who worked closely with local communities. The records describe:

  • The personal experiences of individual missionaries coming to terms with the language and culture in a new mission field.
  • Life under the Japanese occupation of Korea from 1910 to 1945
  • The impact of the Second World War on local Christianity.
  • Life under Communist occupation during the Korean War.
  • The rebuilding of the Korean Church in the aftermath of the war.

Part 1 covers the major administrative records of the mission as well as the correspondence with mission staff, 1908-1986. The latter is an incredibly rich resource for church historians, cultural historians, missiologists, and all those interested in the political and social history of modern Korea.
