Also included in the International Mission Photography Archive. Lorenzo and Ruth Bennett Morgan were American medical missionaries in the Jiangsu and Anhui provinces of China, serving under the Presbyterian and Methodist mission boards from 1905 to 1946. The photo is marked 1904 but the Morgans did not arrive in China until 1905. The photo may relate to the famine that occurred in Jiangsu province in 1907.
