Visualising China’s collections are rich in materials from missionary families, including Bishop William Banister (1855-1928), of the Church Missionary Society, sometime Archdeacon at Hong Kong, and first Bishop of Kwangsi-Hunan; Canadian doctor Charles Coyne Elliott, of the China Inland Mission, who served in Sichuan, from early in the century until 1922, and Fred and Marjorie Cottrell, who worked for the Methodist Missionary Society in Yunnan Province, c.1925-51.

The International Missionary Photography Archive provides a portal into the holdings of a number of university archival holdings of missionary records across Europe and north America, and contains about ten thousand China photographs. Well worth adding as a bookmark.
