Photograph of a Chinese woman standing in front of tall crops or millet. Millet is a cereal crop or grain that has been grown in China since around 6000 BC. The woman is wearing a traditional blue Chinese gown. This belongs to a series of Church of Scotland Foreign Missions Committee lantern slides relating to the Scottish missionary Dugald Christie. Dugald Christie was born in Glencoe in Scotland and studied medicine under the auspices of the Edinburgh Medical Missionary Society. In 1882, along with his first wife, Elizabeth, he went to Manchuria to work as a medical missionary of the United Presbyterian Church of Scotland. He worked initially in Newchang and later moved to the capital of Mukden where he opened Manchuria’s first hospital in 1884. In 1912 he established Mukden Medical College. Dugald Christie retired in 1923 and died in Edinburgh in 1936.
