SCOPE AND CONTENTS OF THE COLLECTION
Annual and quarterly reports of North American YMCA foreign secretaries working in various cities in China between 1895 and 1949. This set of reports was collated from the set of bound Reports of Foreign Secretaries (for all countries) and from the records of YMCA International Work in China. In addition to documenting the successes and challenges of establishing the Young Men's Christian Association in China, the reports provide unique observations on Chinese society during the late Qing and Republican periods. The reports also document the YMCA movement's role in introducing and spreading Western philosophies of education, public health, and physical fitness.
