'Personals' series, or collections of personal papers of missionaries, which have been gifted or deposited with the London Missionary Society (Council for World Mission). The series was created to hold papers of individual missionaries and officers of the London Missionary Society. The papers relate to the various mission regions and also to the Society's home office. Whereas the 'Odds' series contains materials which did not fit into the structured Regional and Home series of records, yet were created in the field or at Home (such as the papers and reference collection relating to David Livingstone), these Personal Papers come from the missionaries themselves.
