About the Archives at Millsaps College

The College and Methodist Archives are two distinct but interrelated special collections of the library.  The Millsaps College Archives preserves the records of the college since 1892; the J.B. Cain Archives of Mississippi Methodism brings together manuscript and printed materials that tell the history of the Mississippi Conference of the United Methodist Church and its antecedents since 1799.
