United Mission to Nepal, Records of the
Name of creator(s):
Administrative/Biographical history: The UMN originated in 1954 when, at the invitation of the Nepal Government and with the help of 8 mission organisations, a group of pioneering individuals set up a mission hospital in Tansen. A copy of the printed history of the UMN, 1954, is included with the archive.
Custodial history: The first deposit of records was made by the United Mission to Nepal with the Selly Oak Colleges Central Library [later forming part of the Orchard Learning Resources Centre] in 1988. Additional deposits have been made on a regular basis. Cataloguing of the records was undertaken by the Special Collections Department, University of Birmingham, in June 2000, as a result of the University of Birmingham's relationship with Selly Oak Colleges endowment trust.
