Biographical / Historical

The Himalayan Archives Association was formed to coordinate care for the archives of four organizations that had been deposited at the University of Edinburgh in the early 1990s. In 2007 when space constraints required the removal of the archives from the University of Edinburgh, the Yale Divinity School Library offered to provide a home for them and the records were received by Yale in 2008.

In addition to the archives of the United Mission to Nepal, International Nepal Fellowship, Central Asia Fellowship, and Nepal Church History Project, the materials received by Yale in 2008 also included the general library of the Himalayan Archives Association. Books in this Himalayan Archives Association have been classified with a local call number system beginning with HC000001. The collection of more than 180 published works can be browsed online via the Orbis "Local call number" search option. The materials in this records group are smaller pamphlets, booklets, reports, and ephemera, which have been described archivally rather than individually cataloged.
