This collection includes periodicals that focus on missionary and charity work undertaken by various faith groups from 1793-1902. All Christian churches were engaged in forms of outreach to groups or individuals who were in need, and this outreach was often inseparable from sharing a religious message and mission. 

The Missionary and Charity Periodicals, 1793-1902 collection includes publications for both foreign and domestic missions and represent outreach to many different groups that include African-Americans, Native Americans, women, the poor, immigrants, and specific ethnic groups. Subjects include slavery, home missions, hospital work, and social problems.
