Evangelism in India took the form primarily of village itineration where male and female

missionariesministered to the spiritual needs of the populace while simultaneously attending

to their medical and educational needs. The collection documents the Board of Foreign

Missions' tripartite ministry (Farukhabad, Punjab, and the West Indian missions) in India but

also reflects the development of the modern Indian state in a broader sense. Reaction to

foreigners generally and Protestant missionaries specifically, discontent with British rule

and the development of the Independence movement, and racial and internecine religious

warfare between Hindu and Muslim populations are well documented.

During World War I, Indian nationalists took advantage of Great Britain’s preoccupation with

the European war by attempting to foment revolution in India to overthrow British rule. The

Justice Department and U.S. Attorney records primarily concern the U.S. government’s

prosecution of these nationalists in the “HinduConspiracy Case” for violations of the Espionage

Act (40 Stat. 217-231) arising from two major incidents. The Immigration and Naturalization

Service records relate to efforts to revoke the citizenship of certain Indians naturalized as

U.S. citizens, as well as to general efforts to exclude Indians from admission to the United

States and Canada.
