About this collection

The University Archives, housed in the Collins Memorial Library and the University of Puget Sound, is home to a collection of missionary letters, and papers, called the Oregon Missions Collection. This collection, dating from the 1820’s to the 1850’s, contains three boxes of letters from missionaries, and those hoping to become missionaries, in the Oregon Territory to each other, and the Board of Missions of the Methodist Episcopal Church in New York City and other letters and documents associated with the Oregon Mission of the Methodist Episcopal Church. It gives great detail and insight into the motivations, daily tasks, and personalities of these early settlers of the territory, and hints at the mindset of those who desired to enter into this Christian mission.
