The body of records consists primarily of correspondence files, minute books and financial reports for the institution established by Dr Thomas Bray and his associates. The files concern the organisation of the Associates up to 1900, and include annual reports. Of particular interest in this collection is the material on the Associates' activities in North America, including Canada, and in the Bahamas, both in the establishment and running of their Negro Schools and in the grant of library books. This work was funded in part by 'Mr D'Allone's Charitable Bequest for the Conversion of Negroes'. This archive forms part of the USPG archive, which is now held at the Rhodes House Library, Oxford.
