This series contains a typewritten manuscript by Margaret H. Brown entitled "History of the Honan (North China) Mission [Presbyterian] of the United Church of Canada," compiled over a period spanning the 1940s to the 1960s. The work chronicles the history of the Canadian mission to central China, first under the Presbyterian Church and later as part of the United Church of Canada, from the 1880s to 1951 when the mission was forced out. The chapters each center on a particular theme, and though they are presented in a roughly chronological order, subsequent chapters will often jump back to begin the narrative from an earlier date. There is also an appendix with a list of missionaries who served in the mission.

This series is arranged in numerical order by chapter.
