The Rice Collection is the personal collection of Mary Compton Rice and her husband, Dr. C. Herbert Rice. They both dedicated their lives to work with educational missions in India. Dr. Rice served as a professor of psychology for six years at Forman Christian College in Lahore and then later served as the principal of Ewing Christian College in Allahabad. They both witnessed the upheaval when India and Pakistan were partitioned in August 1947. This collection includes scrapbooks, journals, diaries, photographs, and correspondence. The bulk of this collection is unprocessed to date. Items that have been processed are noted in the Finding Tool.
