This series consists largely of Pierson's received correspondence with friends, students, church members, publishers, and missionaries, and also contains material for his work on "American Missionary Memorial," to which many of the letters make reference. The development of this work is seen through its many mentions in the correspondence, where it is also referred to as "Biographical Sketches of Missionaries," and where individual sketches, or responses and notes to specific ones, are given.

This series is arranged in rough chronological order.
