Journal Highlight: The Chinese Recorder and Missionary Journal Now Available

The David Allan Hubbard Library is pleased to make The Chinese Recorder and Missionary Journal (1868-1941) available to our users. The Recorder was the longest running English-language journal published in China during the 19th century until its publication was ceased during WWII outbreaks in Shanghai.

The 75 volumes include rare photos, maps, drawings, and statistics on the Christian church and missionary societies in China. Cross-cultural topics including western approaches to Confucianism, local and regional etiquette, and linguistic translation are included in its pages. Readers can access national statistics on baptized converts and data on the number of churches, schools, and hospitals during this timeframe.

The journal was purchased with funds from a generous grant made by the Hugh & Hazel Darling Foundation in support of the library’s growing Pacific Rim collections. We are grateful for the Darling Foundation’s support, and look forward to hearing from our users about the value of this newly available journal.
