 BRIEF HISTORY OF THE SWISS MISSION 
  
 On the 9th July 1875, two young missionaries, Ernest Creux and Paul Berthoud founded the Swiss Mission station of Valdezia in the Northern Transvaal. It was on many occasions a hard hit and tested society. The field of action was in the unhealthy Lowveld, on the Transvaal side as well as beyond the Portuguese East African border, into Mocambique. The mission has constantly developed, not only geographlcally, but in the nature of its work and variety of its undertakings. 
 Its hospitals were famous for the efficiency of their work and the practical help which they rendered to patients. There are hospitals and clinics, three of the hospitals having training schools for nurses. Female missionaries were of great importance in teaching and social work. Its schools and Normal College have done outstanding work. From the scientific standpoint, writers such as H.A. Junod, H.P. Junod, A.A. Jacques and others have contributed much to Bantu studies in all its branches, especially in linguistics and social anthropology. The church has helped to foster good race relations. 
 There is a feeling of affinity and friendship between the Reformed Church of Switzerland, including the Mission Suisse Romande and a large section of South Africans of the same religious faith. There is a strong desire for union between the Presbyterian Church of Southern Africa Presbyterian/Congregational and the Tsonga Presbyterian Church (Swiss Mission in South Africa). Among the tribes of Portuguese East Africa as well in the Northern Transvaal, in Pretoria and Johannesburg, thousands of African people have been built into the fabric of a church whose standards are unusually high. Its relations with other missionary societies have been most cordial and brotherly. 
 The principal task of the mission was evangelisation, but another very important function was education. Schools were opened at Shiluvane, Lemana Training Institution, near Elim, and Rikatla Bible School for the Mozambicans. Some schools had an industrlal and agricultural syllabus. 
 Church organization, Shangaan literature, the Blue Croat' (temperance movement). scout and guide troops, teaching patrols who were went out from the stations Into the bush, are all part of the work of the Swiss Mission. 
  
 INTRODUCTION 
 The collection consists of 168 boxes spanning the years 1878-1976. In 1976, the Swiss Mission agreed to send their archives to Historical Papers, which Professor Tim Couzens collected and brought down in December 1976. A second part arrived in November 1977. A formal agreement was drawn up in 1981 between the Swiss Mission and the University of the Witwatersrand. At a later stage the Bible Translation Project was added and at a further date, M. Beuchat's Tsonga lexographic material for a Tsonga dictionary, consisting of 6 boxes and 2 box files were despatched and are kept here until a decision regarding publication is reached. 
 The original classification provided by the Swiss Mission has been retained, keeping the 2nd additions in like order as far as possible, making adjustments where necessary during integration. The Education section was done in detail by a former member of staff, which is kept in the same order in which she sorted that section of the collection. 
 Part 70.19 - The Bible in Standard Tsonga. There is a listing of the items, stored in 58 boxes, which is attached to the hardcopy inventory. 
 Part S 1-8 - Schneider Papers. The items stored in these S 1-8 boxes are referred to in the inventory. The listing of the items is attached to the hardcopy inventory. 
  
 Reference is made to the collection A1379 Swiss Mission in South Africa, consisting of photocopies only. The original collection is held in the UNISA Documentation Centre, Pretoria, where it had been deposited by the Junod family. 
 Further reference is made to the holdings on the Swiss Mission in South Africa at the Giyani Archive, consisting of another more than 200 boxes and French church journals. The archival material had been collected from all Swiss Mission stations in the region. 
  
 PLEASE NOTE: 3 maps in this collection have been digitised and can be downloaded in PDF format, see items no. 10.1.2g, 10.1.2h, 10.1.2i .
