Top level reports and detailed supporting files describe medical work, education, social welfare and evangelism in India between 1935 and 1959. How did the war impact the Society’s work? How did Independence change their outlook?

Major institutions dealt with include the United Theological College in Bangalore, the Women’s Christian College in Madras, the CSI School for the Deaf in Mylapore, the CSI Hospital in Bangalore and Vellore, the Boys’ Boarding School at Aurangabad, the Robert Money School in Bombay, St Andrew’s Divinity School in Nasik, St Helena’s School in Poona and the work carried out in the Lusadia and Pachwad medical missions.
This Indian mission material will be greatly welcomed by researchers as it provides valuable evidence for social historians of modern India.
