This site offers historical images from Protestant and Catholic missionary collections in Britain, Norway, Germany, France, Switzerland, and the United States. The photographs, which span from the middle of the nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth century, offer a visual record of missionary activities in China, among other countries.
The site provides access to the records of the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) which document the organization's international work in China, Japan, Latin America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Of particular interest is the online exhibit: "Reaching the Gold: The YMCA and the Olympic Movement in China, 1895-1920".
