The main collection of ABCFM papers consists of documents, minutes and letters sent by the missionaries to the Board, arranged geographically by location of mission, then chronologically, then alphabetically by name of the missionary. The finding aid for the ABCFM papers at Houghton is available online.
Many of the papers of the ABCFM have been published in microfilm format, and we ask readers to use the microfilm copies whenever possible. The microfilms are held next door to Houghton in the Government Documents Microtext division of Lamont Library.
You may also be able to order copies of these microfilms via interlibrary loan or find these reels in a library near you (ask your librarian to help you search the WorldCat database to find other holding libraries). You can also order reels directly from the publisher, Primary Source Media.
The reel list for the microfilm series is available online.
Items that are not microfilmed can be consulted in the Houghton Reading Room.
