Scope and Content

This small collection contains a few newspaper clippings that tell about the childhood of Stam; describe the murder in China of her missionary parents, John and Betty Stam, by communist soldiers when she was a baby; her rescue in China by local Christians; and express the hopes of her grandparents that she would become a missionary. There are two folders, one of which contains the original clippings; the other folder contains photocopies of the clippings and is the folder which should be used.
