Ready for Your Research: The Ingram Family Papers
The Ingram Family Papers follow a family across three generations from the late nineteenth century into the mid-twentieth century. Located in Tongzhou, China and later Beijing as a medical missionary with the ABCFM, James Ingram faithfully recorded his impressions on medicine, politics, and culture for his family in the United States. Notable topics include James’ reflections on mental illness, the treatment and politics of opium addiction, letters from Russia and Europe sent while treating the wounded of WWI, and his daughter Isabel’s reports regarding her experience in the Forbidden City in the late Qing dynasty as the tutor to Empress Wanrong.
