Background Note: Originally known as the General Missionary Convention of the Baptist Denomination in the United States for Foreign Missions, or the American Baptist Board of Foreign Missions. The name American Baptist Missionary Union was adopted in 1845 (after the Southern element had withdrawn to form the Foreign Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention). In 1910 the ABMU changed its name to American Baptist Foreign Mission Society, and is now known as the Board of International Ministries, American Baptist Churches.
The Woman's Baptist Foreign Missionary Society and the Woman's Baptist Foreign Missionary Society of the West were consolidated in 1914 under the title Woman's American Baptist Foreign Mission Society. The Free Baptist Woman's Missionary Society was merged with the Woman's American Baptist Foreign Mission Society in 1916.
