Dr Graham Miller and his wife Flora were missionaries in Vanuatu for the Presbyterian Church of New Zealand. They were based on the island of Tongoa (Shepherd Group) from 1941-1947. Dr Miller was principal of the Tangoa Training Institute (TTI) from 1947-52. In 1971 Dr Miller was invited to return to Vanuatu and help establish a Presbyterian Bible College. Dr Miller was also a member of the New Hebrides Synod and was closely involved with the indigenisation of the Presbyterian Church in Vanuatu. These papers concern Dr Miller's tenure at the TTI from 1947-52 and again on Tangoa from 1971-73.

The papers comprise three sections, or volumes. The first, Vol. 5, Five and a half years as Principal of the Teachers Training Institution, 1947-52, includes a description of the Miller's journey from Tongoa to Tangoa, his first steps as Principal, extracts from Dr Miller's LIVE books, photographs, lectures and the TTI's relationship with the condominium authorities. Section two, Vol. 6, Specimens of class lecture material at the Teachers Training Institute, Tangoa 1947-52, includes Dr Miller's selections of graded classroom notes which he used to assist the students in the main classroom disciplines, e.g. teaching the Bible, English, Christian conduct, practical training, church work & witness, teaching method, preaching class and Christian doctrine. Section three, Vol. 12, Presbyterian Bible College, Tangoa, 1971-73, includes papers on the Miller's return to Tangoa, plans for the Bible College, newsletters, TTI publications, patterns of student life & activities, student fieldwork, refresher courses, conferences, staff appointments and the Silver Jubilee of the PCNH. The volume concludes with descriptions of the 10th anniversary celebrations of the Bible College in 1981.
