Custodial History

In the mid 1990s a Presbyterian Missionary began to collect together materials related to the church's missionary interests for the benefit of the Church as a whole. Towards the end of the decade the materials were transported to Union Theological College and have remained there until the present day. The collection came to be known as the Presbyterian Mission Archive and is owned by the Presbyterian Church in Ireland.
