In the War but Not of the War: The Protestant Public Sphere in WW-II-era China

O'Keefe, Amy R. M.

Many thanks for a very fruitful trip to Columbia University’s Burke Library. Helpful staff
enabled me to maximize my productivity during the short time I was there, and I came away
thrilled with what I was able to accomplish. While in New York I went through a large amount
of the materials in the National Christian Council of China papers, took photos of relevant items
for future perusal, and obtained digital copies of much of the China Bulletin. The materials that I gathered and began looking through while at the Burke Library helped me get a feel for the origins of the “Christianize the Home” movement begun by the N.C.C. in the 1920s, which I plan to make central in my dissertation.
