Biographical or historical data
The Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. organized the Woman's Executive Committee of Home Missions in 1877 to provide schools and teachers for the mission fields in the western and southwestern US. The committee supported missionaries among the Mormons in Utah and among the Native American and Spanish-speaking peoples of the southwest, later extending this work to Alaska, Puerto Rico, Cuba, and the Appalachians. The committee also published pamphlets, leaflets, a missionary magazine entitled Home Mission Monthly, and an annual "Prayer Calendar." In 1897, it changed its name to Woman's Board of Home Missions. After incorporating in 1915, it ceased to be a subsidiary of the Board of Home Missions. In 1923 the Woman's Board was merged with seven other boards and agencies of the church to create one unified Board of National Missions (BNM), and its work was divided between two units of the new Board. The Woman's Board continued to function as a holding corporation until the 1958 reunion of the PCUSA and the UPCNA.
