Collection Description

The collaboration of the Amistad Research Center and the Louisiana State University Digital Library, through funding provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, has produced a digital collection of national significance entitled "The American Missionary Association and the Promise of a Multicultural America:1839-1954."

With the aid of new and exciting technology, images from the Amistad archives pertaining to the American Missionary Association are on permanent display through the LSU Digital Library via the Internet.

The actual manuscripts and photographs continue to reside in a safe and secure archival environment at the Amistad Research Center located on the campus of Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. Consequently, the goals of providing increased access to educational materials as put forth by IMLS are being met in a uniquely modern way.

By digitizing this culturally significant work, those who seek a better understanding of the human condition will have access to the archival records at no risk to the originals, thus preserving history for future generations.
