- The Archives of the Medical Mission Sisters documents the history of their mission, charism and ministries around the world. The Mission movement, founded by Dr. Ann Dengel in 1925, established clinics, hospitals and schools of nurse-midwifery around the world. As the Sisters trained local professionals, they turned the established hospitals over to local authorities. They published the Medical Missionary Magazine from 1927 to 1970; this remains the best source of historical information about the community. The archives are open to the public.
