As a repository for the records of Hope College and Western Theological Seminary, as well as the papers of many Holland organizations and individuals, the Joint Archives of Holland’s collections hold many interesting local history stories. Often, these stories showcase connections across the local community and with the wider world.

The Mary E. Geegh Papers, newly available for research, are one example of global story with local roots. Read Carolyn Thornbury’s article about Geegh’s missionary work in India in the Winter 2023 issue of The Joint Archives Quarterly.
