Overview

The Division of Foreign Missions administered and promoted the work of missions outside the United States and its dependencies that were formerly administered by the Board of Foreign Missions of the Methodist Episcopal Church (MEC).

The Division of Foreign Missions (DFM) formulated plans and policies for the administration of foreign missions, considered the lines of work, fields to be occupied, and various enterprise, and made recommendations to the Board for approval.

This collection consists of the DFM’s correspondence, begun under the Board of Foreign Missions of Methodist Episcopal Church. The collection is composed of:

Outgoing Correspondence: contains letters to missionaries from the Board, headquartered New York City, and
Incoming Correspondence: which contains letters from missionaries to the Board.

Correspondence is filed together under each missionary’s name. The material is arranged by geographic locations and then by conference or area.
