    Creator: Denning House Antiquarian Books & Manuscripts .
    Repository: ECU Manuscript Collection
    Language: English
    Abstract: This collection contains two photograph albums of missionary and Y.M.C.A. related photographs of China. The creator of one album is not known, but the photographs date from 1930 through 1936 and have very descriptive captions including identifications of people. The images are of people, activities, and buildings in such places as Taiyuan, Houkou, Chin Ssu, and Chin Chow among other places. There are also images of Sherwood Eddy who was appointed the Y.M.C.A. secretary for Asia in 1911 and retired from the Y.M.C.A. in 1931. The other album has the identification "Album with photographs presented by 'Father Lucian' of the Catholic Mission," but it's not known where this Catholic Mission was located. These photographs are not dated but seem to be from the 1920s and 1930s and are mostly of identified buildings and scenery in Taiyuan, Kiao-Kow, Hankow, Wu Ch'eng City, Tientsin, Shanghai, and Peiping among others.
