Archivist's Note


Custodial History

Much of this material was transferred to SOAS Library from the headquarters of the Council for World Mission (Ipalo House) in January 2008. Some items would originally have formed part of the London Missionary Society's Missionary Museum. Where this is the case, items have been checked against historical inventories of objects and details indicated in the catalogue record.
