The material in the Mary E. Ferguson papers deals with the research, writing, and publication of "China Medical Board - Peking Union Medical College: A Chronicle of Fruitful Collaboration, 1914-1951," published in New York, 1970. The strength of the collection lies in the primary source documents: interviews with former staff at the Peking Union Medical College (PUMC), correspondence relating to the book's conception through publication, and reports of China during the Japanese occupation and after nationalization in 1951. Much of the research correspondence had been photocopied from the files of the China Medical Board, Inc., and the Rockefeller Foundation. (The book is an administrative history of PUMC, and most of the research material deals with the staff and administration of the institution.)
