Compassion in the Face of Internment: The Story of the Cunninghams
This presentation will focus on the process of acquisition, rehousing, research, and digitization of the Cunningham Papers: a collection of letters, documents, and photographs recently acquired by the Young Center. These documents tell the story of Lloyd and Ellen Cunningham, two Brethren missionaries imprisoned by the Japanese Imperial Army from 1941 to 1945.
Caitlin Rossiter, a senior at Elizabethtown College, is studying history and French with a minor in religious studies. She is also pursuing the Public Heritage Studies certificate, as she plans to attend graduate school for public history or museum studies. Rossiter will graduate in December 2020.
