Women and Methodist Missions

On Thursday I delivered an additional 85 texts to Internet Archive located at Princeton Theological Seminary. Internet Archive has a scanning station located in a dark, cave-like room at the library with six scanning machines where employees (many with headphones) digitize print texts into digital format. Instantly text on paper pages move to e-text and eventually are available globally to those with internet connection.

The latest delivery of Drew materials consisted of dozens of annual reports for the women’s missionary organizations of the Methodist Protestant Church, Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and Methodist Church. These reports include the day-to-day activities of women missionaries and also include photographs and biographical information of many intercultural workers. I also delivered several general histories of women and missionary work for scanning.

To date the American Methodism Project has over 2,500 digital texts available for free; in several downloadable or reader-friendly formats. If you are interested in Methodist missionary history — specifically Methodist women and missions — please go to the following link to discover the work of several thousand women in American Methodism.
