The American Missionary Association began as an interdenominational missionary organization which was strongly influenced by abolitionism. Its chief characteristics were evangelical abolitionism and religious and educational work among minority groups.

This collection relates to the American Missionary Association's work in Illinois. Most of the collection (12 reels) date between 1853 and 1874. Included are letters, observations, and reports relative to all activities and relationships of the organization including reform activities other than abolitionism.

The microfilm was obtained from the Amistad Research Center, Dillard University, New Orleans, in 1973. The Amistad Center later moved to Tulane University.
