These document the Red Bird Mission after its incorporation in 1968, although some earlier materials are also included.

Among these are Board of Directors minutes, reports, and correspondence (1968 - 1978); finance and fund raising materials (1967 - 1978); and documentation on the Red Bird Mission Hospital (1949 - 1981). Also included are copies of the Kentucky Missionary and Red Bird Missionary Conference Proceedings (1955 - 1976).

Also present are resource and economic development files (1961 - 1980) documenting work training, housing, farming, and crafts projects sponsored by the Mission in conjunction with church, government, or private organizations. Personnel files (1947 - 1981) include applications, academic and professional credentials, and correspondence concerning Mission staff.
