Custodial HistoryThese papers were acquired with the records of the Korean Mission which were deposited in 1987 and 1993 with the Selly Oak Colleges Library. The papers of Constance Trollope and her brother Mark Napier Trollope were found together, suggesting that this material was originally collected together by Constance Trollope. The papers were then transferred to the Orchard Learning Resources Centre which was opened in 1997 following the merger of the Selly Oak Colleges Library and the Westhill College Library. In 2000, the custodianship of all archive collections held at the Orchard Learning Resources Centre was transferred to the University of Birmingham
