Biographical / Historical

L. C. Wood was a missionary with the China Inland Mission in the region of Ningsia, north-west China. He arrived in China around the early 1920s and worked there with his wife until he left in January 1943. On his return to England he gave talks and slide shows about the mission in China.

Extent

1 part-box

Arrangement

The slides are in order but some are missing and some do not seem to have a description in the commentary. They are numbered but the numbers do not always relate to the numbers in the commentary. The photographs are captioned.

Custodial History

The collection was briefly listed by Ralph Covell in 1992.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

The slides were probably presented to the Centre for the Study of Christianity in the Non-Western world by A. J. Broomhall when he presented other CIM slides.

Accruals

None expected.

Related Materials

The archives of the China Inland Mission (now Overseas Missionary Fellowship) are held at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. Another set of slides on China and the CIM was presented to the Centre by A. J. Broomhall.

General

The biographical history was compiled using the collection itself.
