Excerpt from Eminent Missionary Women:
This unpretentious volume is the outgrowth of experience in connection with current missionary literature of many lands and of many societies. A great many persons, widely separated from each other, through a series of years have solicited information from the author about eminent missionary women, such as could not be found except in fragments in inaccessible reports or other current literature.
To meet the want thus indicated this group of biographical sketches has been prepared, covering one or two prominent women who have been leaders or creators of missionary sentiment at home, and typical women in many missionary societies, with some independent workers. It is thus pan-denominational.
It also represents the several classes of work which women have been able to conduct on the field - educational, evangelistic, literary, medical, or eleemosynary.
The volume is not a contribution to hero-worship.
