Scope and Content

The minute books contain manuscript and typescript minutes of meetings of the Executive Committee, which later became the Management Committee. This committee was responsible for the management, organization and administration of the Mission's staff, funds, resources and activities, as well as the welfare and provision of the street children. The Executive Committee appointed further committees to oversee particular areas of interest, such as the Special Committee, the Finance Committee and the Sunday School Committee. The minutes provide comprehensive coverage of the nature and development of the Wood Street Mission over an eighty-year period.
