About This Item

Jagraon, India, 1927. Photo Album. 7 " x 11 " Heavy black kraft paper with tie binding. 155 original black and white photos ranging in size from 1 " x 2 " to 6 " x 4 ". This photo album documents a group of white Christian missionaries serving in India in the late 1920s; primarily in the area of Jagraon, in the state of Punjab. Jagraon is an important religious center for Sikhs, Hindus, Muslims as well as Jains. This group of missionaries seems to be comprised primarily of women and includes at least two children. The album includes photographs of the people served by the Christian mission, as well as local hospital workers and educators. There are several photographs of the local people in extreme circumstances, including being ravaged by disease and starvation. Photographs of indigenous people at work and in traditional dress. One page of photographs show the same family on a visit to Venice, Italy. Many of the photos include notations. Most of the photos are dated 1927-1928. In the 1920s, the National Christian Council propagated the 'Moga Plan' with a new emphasis on rural education in India. By 1928, Christian missionaries had instituted numerous vocational Middle Schools modelled on the 'Moga' experiment in all parts of India. This photo album includes photos of one of these "middle schools."
