Abstract (For book reviews see instructions below)

This article focuses on previously unpublished data concerning pioneer women who helped establish and govern different levels of the Adventist Church between 1906 and 1940 in what is now the Inter-American Division. The article begins with information obtained from different yearbooks, and then traces the identity and work of pioneer Adventist women in documents such as General Conference minutes, newspapers, civil registries, and through information provided by their descendants. It also highlights the contributions of these women as the first local missionaries and founders of the Sabbath School (1880s) and Young People’s Missionary Volunteer (YPMV) (1900s) departments. It also highlights how these pioneer women served missions, conferences, and unions in various capacities. This historical review of Adventist pioneer women in Latin America and the Caribbean is divided into two periods: 1902 to 1921, and 1922 to the 1940s.
