Description
"Old-style Doctor, China" Photograph of a male Chinese Doctor. The doctor is wearing a long blue robe, there is a table behind him possibly with a pile of books on top.
This belongs to a series of Church of Scotland Foreign Missions Committee lantern slides relating to the Scottish missionary Dugald Christie.

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.
