Date:

Collection Restrictions:
The Priscilla Reining papers are open for research.

Some materials from the East African Medical Survey and Ethnography of Reproduction project contain personal medical history and are thus restricted. Grant applications sent to Reining to review are also restricted as well as her students' grades, and recommendation letters Reining wrote for her students. Electronic records are also restricted.

A small portion of the materials relating to Reining's Haya research, Ethnography of Reproduction project, and IBRD ujamaa research suffered severe mold damage. These materials have been cleaned and may be accessed. The legibility of some of the documents, however, is limited due to water and mold stains. Mold odor is also still present.

Biographical / Historical:
The Africa Inland Mission (AIM) is a non-denominational Christian missionary organization that focuses on Africa. The organization was founded in 1895 by Scottish-American missionary Peter Cameron Scott of the International Missionary Alliance. Scott and his fellow missionaries arrived in Mombasa in October of 1895 and within a year had established four missions in Kenya. Scott's untimely death in 1896 almost led to the dissolution of AIM, but support from the Philadelphia Missionary Council and a new director in the person of Rev. Charles Hurlburt reinvigorated the project. In 1909 a station was set up in what was then German East Africa (Tanzania) and in 1912, Theodore Roosevelt intervened on behalf of his friend Hurlburt to persuade the Belgian government to allow the mission to establish a station in the Congo. Today, AIM operates in 13 countries in Central and Southern Africa.
