This series is open for research.

0.25 linear feet; 0.25 linear feet; 1 box

This series contains clippings and publications related to the Daniels' work in China. The bulk of this material is from the 1930s and 40s, and includes a number of documents relating to the Nanking Massacre of 1937. Two local publications, The Nanking Bulletin of Church and Community and its continuation, Notes and Notices of the Nanking Union Church and Community, are represented here by a very comprehensive collection of issues. The 1949 Nanking Bulletin directory offers a unique glimpse into the foreign community of the Chinese capital only months before the establishment of the People's Republic, and the subsequent exodus of most of the Christian missionaries and Western diplomats.

This series is arranged roughly chronologically.
