SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

This collection is arranged in five Series:  1) Correspondence and reports; 2) Homer W. Partch Correspondence, 1880-1883; 3) Omaha Mission School Correspondence, 1865-1868; 4) John T. Copley Correspondence, 1886-1887; and 5) Margaret Copley Wade Correspondence, 1883-1886.  The materials relate to the Presbyterian educational program with Indians in Nebraska and the Omaha Indian Mission.

Series 1 forms the bulk of the collection.  It contains correspondence and reports sent to the Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions by missionaries to the Indians.  Most of the items selected for filming were written to Walter Lowrie, Secretary of the Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions, by missionaries to the Omaha and Otoe tribes in Nebraska.  They date from 1846-1868 and describe day-to-day activities at the missions.  Included are financial reports, quarterly reports, letters concerning farming and teaching activities of mission personnel and many other topics.  The letters in this series were selected for filming by Donald F. Danker of the Historical Society in 1957.  They were arranged for filming by the Presbyterian Historical Society in Pennsylvania.  Letters are listed on the following pages in the order in which they appear on the film.  In some instances information as to subject matter is enclosed in brackets.  When the addressee’s name is not included on the letter, but his identity is clear, his name is included in brackets.
