- The slides show missionaries at work in Africa. There are some rare images of villagers including closeups of women, an image of what the missionaries refer to as "devils with their attendants", a dead man buried up to his head in stones, and a man skinning and gutting a crocodile. Other images show missionaries traversing deep canyons with villagers as guides, washing up in a river, thatching huts with villagers, etc. Occasionally the slides are marked "converts."
- Open for research; material must be requested at least 24 hours in advance of intended use.
