Africa Odds

Scope and Content

This series contains miscellaneous papers relating to the Africa mission field which would not fit into the above series of records. Listing of these records is somewhat limited, but the lists should be consulted as much useful material can be found. Papers often give interesting information on the organisation of individual missions that may not be found elsewhere. The series includes papers of Deputational visits to LMS missions. One of the most significant sequences of Africa Odds are the papers of David Livingstone, which is a reference collection put together by the LMS and which includes a collection of his letters, ephemera, printed materials, and materials donated from other sources.
