This series is open for research.

This series contains records of the Ecumenical Conference on Foreign Missions including minutes, reports, presented essays, and related administrative records. The bulk of the collection consists of stenographic reports from general and sectional meetings from April 23 through the end of the Conference on May 1, as well as copies of essays and reports that were presented during sectional meetings. The stenographic reports are transcriptions that document the entirety of the Conference's meetings and sessions with the exception of papers that were presented. These conference papers are separate from the stenographic reports and include both original and photocopied versions of essays presented at the Conference. The collection also includes the Conference programme, a register documenting attendees, and an oversize negative photographic copy of a special issue of the New York Tribune, May 2, 1900.
