Description: The American China Mission Project (twenty-five interviews) chronicles Wayne Anderson's involvement with Episcopalian missionaries who traveled throughout China between 1917 and 1950. Of significance are the interviews with the group's leaders, the Reverend Leslie and Mary Fairfield. The Mission introduced churches, schools, and medical facilities to impoverished communities in China and trained individuals to manage these institutions independently.
