Conversations with . . .Heather Humphries: Missionaries, Mariners, Mao and Modern Day China – A Journey

Thursday, May 9, 1:30 p.m., Enrichment Studios

In the late 1890s a Scottish sea captain and an American female doctor went to China, met, married and raised a family. They and their children left their mark. Their granddaughter, resident Heather Humphries, took her grandson on a journey to find out what happened to the places their family had been.

This geographic area was significantly involved and Jim will also give us a brief look at some of those elements that may be explored today; one is even within the City of Winchester!
