Stegall Collection: Africa: Congo Photographs
Page 1

We have digitized many photographs primarily taken by Presbyterian Industrial Missionary Carroll R. Stegall (1891 - 1965) while in the Congo for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.). Carroll and his wife, Sarah Valdes Stegall, served in the Congo for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.) from 1915 - 1951.

We will be posting many digital images of these photos during January 2011.

Several of these photographs were used in the Presbyterian Heritage Center's exhibit: No Turning Back: The American Presbyterian Missions to Africa, 1833 - Present. This exhibit covered the countries of Liberia (American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions), Cameroon (Presbyterian Church U.S.A.), Congo (Presbyterian Church U.S.) and Sudan (United Presbyterian Church of North America).
