Description The UMCA was founded in the late 1850s, after the return of Dr David Livingstone from the region in 1857. This high church" Anglican society drew its missionaries initially from the universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Durham and Dublin. Under its motto "A servant of servants", from its main centres of Zanzibar and Nyasaland (now Malawi), the UMCA began from an early date opposing the slave trade and promoting the education of the indigenous people and the training and ordination of African priests. In 1965 the UMCA merged with the much older Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts to form the United Society for the Propagation of the Gospel. This collection, beginning with the Mission's monthly journal, <i>Central Africa</i>, comprises UMCA materials preserved in the USPG archive at the Rhodes House Library, Oxford.
