Historia administrativa

The Historical Papers research archive, situated in the William Cullen Library, was established in 1966. Its first holdings were the Jan Hofmeyr collection and the Gubbins collection as well as manuscripts which were transferred from the Africana section in the William Cullen Library.

It has since become one of the largest and most comprehensive independent archives in Southern Africa. We house over 3300 collections of historical, political and cultural importance, encompass the mid 17th Century to the Present.

Historia archivística

An agreement was signed in 1937 between the Church of the Province of South Africa - now known as the Anglican Church of Southern Africa (ACSA) - and the University of the Witwatersrand, whereby the church's Central Record Library was placed on loan with the University. The library consisted of books, pamphlets, periodicals and manuscripts.

The Anglican manuscripts were initially described in Section 2 of the University Library's Guide to the Archives and Papers which ran through three editions between 1967-1975 and a Cumulative Supplement 1975-1979. With the growth of the church’s collection of manuscripts, it became more manageable to publish a separate guide to it. This edition of the Guide to the Archives of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa lists all Anglican Church collections described in previous guides, together with all accessions between 2000 and 2009.
