Canon Hugh Evan Hopkins (1907-1994) was educated at Haileybury College and Emmanuel College, Cambridge and trained for ordination at Ridley Hall. In 1931 he sailed for India, where he worked at the Dohnavur until 1937. From 1947 to 1955, he was abroad again, as provost of the Anglican cathedral in Nairobi. On his return to England, he was successively rector of St Mary-le-Bow, London, and Cheltenham (where he became a canon of Gloucester Cathedral), before retiring to Cambridge in 1973. A noted preacher, this collection mainly comprises his meticulously-written notes for sermons and addresses over 40 years, demonstrating his personal theology and belief in the central importance of mission. There are also a journal of  his missionary tours of universities and colleges for the Inter-Varsity Fellowship in England and texts of two unpublished theological works.
