James F. Clarke (1832-1916) and Isabella G. (Davis) Clark, ABCFM missionaries stationed at Samokov (Bulgaria), 1871-1916

In 2017 the Yale Divinity Library acquired a collection of about one hundred daguerreotypes from the Andover Newton Theological School, with digital surrogates. Originally created by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, they portray ABCFM missionaries stationed in various locations in Africa, the Near East, and South Asia. The daguerreotypes are now part of the Yale University Library Digital Collections, where they form one of the Divinity Library Photographic collections.
