The American Board in the World: Bicentennial Reflections on the Organization's Missionary Work, 1810-2010
Join historians Professor Paul Burlin and Professor Clifford Putney for a discussion of their brand new book, The Role of the American Board in the World: Bicentennial Reflections on the Organization's Missionary Work, 1810-2010.
In 2010 the Congregational Library hosted a lively conference to mark the American Board bicentennial, a unique gathering of scholars and missionaries from all over the world.
This work includes many of the essays presented, covering a wide range of ABCFM history, from the first voyages to Hawaii to the establishment of schools in China, South Africa, and the Middle East. This is a great chance to catch up on the conference if you missed it and meet some of the participants!
Bring your lunch and a thirst for history.
Wednesday, April 4th
12:00 - 1:00 pm
Join us for lunch at noon.
Program begins promptly at 12:15.
