Henderson, Alice E.: My Yesterdays : In Sunshine and Shadow.

Christchurch 1947. Presbyterian Church of New Zealand. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Good. tape ghosts on cover and top corner of rear cover missing, 199 pages.

Apparently, from 1892, the Presbyterian Church in New Zealand and, more so, the Presbyterian Women’s Missionary Union, financially supported a number of women missionaries working for the United Free Church of Scotland and Church of Scotland missions in or around Madras and Nagpur. Dr. W.J. Porteous was sent to India to establish a new mission area, and he chose the Punjab. The only Madras missionary to transfer to the new mission was Alice Henderson, who appears to have come to Madras in 1898 and worked in the George Town United Free Church of Scotland Mission School till 1909. She had learnt Tamil and Telugu to qualify to teach in Government Schools in the Madras Presidency. She also learnt Tamil Braille after seeing the plight of so many visually-impaired in Madras. She started a special Braille school, which taught handicrafts, the girls specialising in lace-making. Please click here to ask a question
