Ramabai Dongre Medhavi, known as Pandita Ramabai (1858-1922), was an Indian evangelist, social reformer, Bible translator and theologian. She developed Mukti, an orphanage and center of refuge for women. In 1905, a Pentecostal style revival took place at Mukti, influenced by the Wesleyan Holiness missionary Minnie Abrams. From that time onward, Pandita Ramabai offered hospitality and opportunities for ministry to Pentecostal missionaries from around the world. This was especially true for the Scandinavian Pentecostal missionaries to India between 1908 and 1922. Some Pentecostals used her and her ministry as ideals of women in ministry, including T.B. Barratt who visited from Norway. The microfiche edition (910 fiche) of her archive includes unpublished letters, photographs, periodicals, and copies of 249 books that were in her library and the Ramabai Mukti Mission. The collection also includes 5 rolls of microfilm
