Baptists in Burma

Design by Kristen Pantle

The story of early missionary activity in the late 19th century is a central narrative in the early years of several universities and college across the country, including the Ohio 5 and GLCA. Because of Denison University’s Baptist affiliation, both the university archives and museum hold an untold story of American Baptist Missionary activity in 19th Century Burma, as well as an intimate portrait of Burma’s evolution during that period. This story is told through photographs, journals, artwork, and other unique primary sources.
