The Legacy of Luella Miner

Mary Shepard Wong

Luella Miner, missionary to China from 1887 to 1935, was the founder and president of the first college for women in China. Her many writings, including letters, journals, articles, and books, are a window into China’s changing political scene in the early twentieth century and into the life of an educational missionary in north China who helped launch basic education for girls and higher education for women.
