There are no restrictions on the use of this collection.
Missionaries with China Inland Mission; Minnie's maiden name was Green.
Scope and Content
Two newsletters which describe the Flaggs' work as missionaries with China Inland Mission, and political and social turmoil due to conflict between Nationalist and Communist forces and local robber bands, including G.M. Metcalf's being held as a hostage; Shanghai CIM compound caught in the crossfire in one instance; missionaries fleeing from the countryside; propaganda slogans; and attempts to continue work inland. Since many CIM "refugees" had evacuated their inland stations and were staying in Shanghai, the letters also include accounts of a staff celebration and Moody Bible Institute reunion there, as well as a complete list of CIM workers temporarily staying in Shanghai.
The materials for this collection were received by the Center in April 1982 from Overseas
Missionary Fellowship (Wayne Courtney).
