Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
EUSA and Latin Link kept a record of each missionary who served in the South American field, and also kept some files on regular supporters and workers. Typically, the files contain an application form and references that were required to join the mission, and also confidential correspondence. Files were also inherited from the Andes Evangelical Mission and Regions Beyond Missionary Union when they merged with EUSA (1982 and 1991 respectively).
Conditions Governing Access
Since these files are covered by the Data Protection Act (1998), there are access restrictions on many of them. However, the age and content of some files means that they are available for public access. Please contact the Director of the Centre for the Study of World Christianity, Professor Brian Stanley, at email@example.com for further details on access restrictions. Alternatively, please telephone the Centre on 0131 650 8934.
