Abstract:

The collection consists largely of field correspondence and reports from home missionaries in Alaska to the Office/Department of Work in Alaska of the Board of National Missions and for the work at Haines House, Haines, Alaska, to the Division of Educational and Medical Work. A major portion of the records deal with property matters including legal documents (leases and contracts) and surveys. The correspondence of S. Hall Young, a pioneer missionary in Alaska and later general missionary, and James Condit, general missionary, is especially full for the period of about 1897-1922. There are also a few letters of Sheldon Jackson. The extensive correspondence of Dr. William R. Greist, who served 16 years at Barrow, includes a report of the airplane accident that killed Wiley Post and Will Rogers in 1936. The relationship of the Presbyterian Church and the federal government is illustrated by correspondence with senators, the Bureau of Education, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
