This series contains records of the Laymen's Missionary Movement (LMM) which focused on helping churches with foreign missions, including minutes, reports, proceedings of committees and conferences, correspondence, publicity material, publications, photographs, and by-laws and legal documents. The bulk of material dates to the inception of the organization and the minutes date to the earliest meetings of the Movement, and lay out the basis for membership, what membership involves, and elected executive committee members. Some of the minutes are in full; others only extracts. Legal documents include an Articles of Amendment, a certificate, and a commendation offered.

This series is unarranged, though roughly grouped by material type.
