This collection contains three thousands postcards dating from the early to mid twentieth century (the bulk being from the 1930s). The images and photographs on the cards include villages, schools, churches, missions, and people. The collection acquired in 2007 has been scanned and made available on the Pitts Theology Library's Digital Image Archive (under call number MSS 353).
This large collection of postcards contains images of Christian missionary activity in various parts of Africa. Though some of the postcards have been stamped and mailed, the vast majority are unused. People researching ethnography, missiology, or the history of Christian evangelism and mission in Africa may find this collection particularly useful. Pitts Theology Library acquired this collection in three parts (2007, 2015, 2016).
