Series 3 Ely (Lois Anna)

Scope and Content Note

Lois Anna Ely was born in Missouri on December 29, 1888. She completed her Master of Arts from the College Missions in June 1919, writing the thesis Kwan-Yin Bodhisattva. She was a teacher and church worker for the United Christian Missionary Society in Nanking. In the early 1940s Ms. Ely moved to Shanghai where she did editorial work. While living in Shanghai was taken to the Great China University grounds to captivity and was in a Japanese Prison camp for 8 months. 1050 prisoners from Great Britain, United States, and Holland were held in the internment camp, a plot of 12 acres known as the Chapei Civil Assembly Center. Ms. Ely lost 25 pounds while in captivity at the camp. The ordeal finally concluded in 1943, when the hostages were taken home on the SS Gripsholm, a Swedish prisoner exchange. Ms. Ely died in 1972 at 83 years old.
The bulk of the Lois Ely collection contains scrapbooks that document her time in the Japanese internment camp. Included are numerous letters from loved ones, newspaper clippings, and ephemeral materials, such as menus from the ship while she was headed home, postcards of sites visited, cloth samples, and identification cards. One of the scrapbooks features a detailed hand colored ink sketch of the compound where she was imprisoned.

Series 10 Lingle (Jean)

Scope and Content Note

Jean Lingle was born on March 4, 1868 in Cincinnati, Ohio. In 1889, age 21, she married Rev. Ellsworth G. Ritchie, whom she followed to Shandong, China that same year. Within a year of their arrival, Mrs. Jean Richardson Ritchie lost her first born (a son) and within a matter of weeks later her husband died of dysentery. She said of him that he was her "all in all." The Calvin Mateer's persuded her to stay on; unusual for a single recently widowed woman. Until 1889, she taught at the Mateer school.
It is not clear how she met he second husband, Rev. William Hill Lingle, but she married him in August 1895, probably in Shanghai.
In 1890, Rev. William Lingle married Cora Smith. After arriving in Guangdong province, China, she became very ill, and the couple returned home. Soon afterwards, Cora Smith Lingle died. William returned to China, ca. 1893. How he met and subsequently met Jean Richardson Ritchie, the evidence does not say I suspect that theirs was a "missionary marriage." Subsequently, she followed him south to Guangdong. He began "intinerating" in southern Hunan in 1898-1899. Meanwhile, Jean returned to the States extremely ill. She was pregnant with their second daughter. She gave birth to Margaret ca. 1899.
woman As a newlywed, she moved to China with her husband, Rev. William H. Lingle in 1889. The Lingles spent the next 43 years working as Presbyterian missionaries and educators in China. For a time Mrs. Lingle worked as the principle of the Fuhsiang High School for Girls.
In 1899 or 1900, she returned to China with the approval to open a nwe mission in Hunan. An interesting sidelight to Mrs. Ingle was her conversion (ultimately temporary) to Seventh Day Adventism. Because of her dalliance with Adventism, she was almost expelled for the Presbyterian Church.
In 1932 Mr. and Mrs. Lingle moved to Pasadena, California. They had two daughters, Mrs. Margaret Lingle Amos and Mrs. Dorothea Lingle Brannon. Mrs. Lingle died on September 12, 1953 at the age of 85 years old.
The bulk of the Lingle collection contains correspondence (1889-1953), writings on her experiences in China, reports from the girls middle school where Lingle worked, and photographs.
Excerpts taken from an email from Charles R. Lilley, Ph.D, adjunct professor of History at the University of Maryland July 01, 2009.

Series 19 Steurt (Marjorie Rankin)

Scope and Content Note

Marjorie Rankin Steurt was born October 8, 1888 in Penfield, Pennsylvania. She finished her B.A. at Mount Holyoke and an M.A. and Ph.D. in educational psychology and counseling from Teachers College, Columbia University.
In 1912 Mrs. Steurt arrived in China as a missionary, sponsored by the Presbyterian Mission Board. In Weihsien from 1912-1919, Mrs. Steurt taught at a girls high school, acting as principal for one year. During this time she supervised 40 country schools and started an experimental school in Tsingtau. For the following several years, Mrs. Steurt taught in Weihsien at the boys high school, and then at a school in Ichowfu.
From 1926-1927, Mrs. Steurt was head of the English department in Cheeloo University in Tsinanfu, the capital of Shentung. Due to the Nanking Massacre, a communist student uprising in 1927 she held this position for less than one year. All foreigners were ordered to the coast and Mrs. Steurt traveled back to the United States where she continued with her graduate studies in personnel and psychology at the Teachers College at Columbia University.
Mrs. Steurt was able to return to China in 1929 when she became the director of an experiment school in one of the big government universities, Nankai, in Tientsin. In 1932 the university was destroyed by the Japanese and Mrs. Steurt moved back to the United States.
1934 -1937 Mrs. Steurt was head of the psychology department and dean of students at Monmouth Junior College at Long Branch, New Jersey. In 1937 Mrs. Steurt married Roy Steurt. Marjorie Steurt died in 1978.
