Subject

Notable Individuals

Description

MBS considers options for her future, and whether there will be a place for the foreigner in mission education in China in the new future. She does not doubt that there is a place for her in administration (possibly even as the next Dean of the Women's College, which she feels ambivalent about), but is not certain that she should remain at Yenching for much longer if she wants to teach English when she returns to the States.

Also contains a small blueprint in her discussion of faculty housing.
