Small Collection 086 Papers of Herbert and Minnie Flagg
Scope and Contents
This collection contains two prayer letters from Herbert W. and Minnie E. Flagg, decsribing 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.
