Find Out More about Mary

Thanks to Leisure and Culture (Dundee City Council) a wealth of information exists about Mary Slessor.

There is a permanent exhibition in the Upper Gallery of the McManus, with some audio visual capability, which incorporates a number of notable artefacts but particularly Mary’s bible, awash as it is with notes, thoughts and messages, written along the perimeter of virtually every page.

The Leisure and Culture website also provides links to a library of letters to and from Mary Slessor and a host of other articles, which are a phenomenal record which not only illustrate her character, but her dexterity, sense of humour and political acumen. Click here.

The late Edna Healey, in conjunction with Scottish Television, produced a documentary, over two episodes, entitled:-

“One More River: The Life of Mary Slessor in Nigeria”.
