This series contains the records of the Boston Missions Offices for the publication of the Al Baghdadi and The Jesuit magazine. It is divided into two sub-series, one for each publication. Issues of the publications are stored elsewhere, most often in RG 14 Publications or with the collection of the corresponding work or individual.

The Al Baghdadi was a newsletter about the Iraq Mission published irregularly from 1932 until 1966. The first issues were printed on shipboard while on route to Iraq. Later, material for the Al Baghdadi was sent to Boston and the newsletter was printed and distributed from Massachusetts.

The Jesuit follows Jesuit Missions magazine and the Jesuit Seminary News magazine. It was published as a cooperative venture of the Maryland, New Orleans, New York, Oregon, California, New England, Wisconsin, Chicago, and Detroit Provinces. Each Province had a regional page spread in each issue. The New England Edition was published from 1968 to 1983.
