Retired missionaries, Harry & Ruth W. visited the Marston Memorial Historical Center for research. Harry’s parents, Rev. Harold and Carolyn W. had also been missionaries and Harold served as the General Missionary Secretary for the Free Methodist Church.
Harry was a little boy when his father died and he was delighted when we told him his father’s correspondence files were in the Free Methodist Archive. He spent time looking at his dad’s handwriting and reading his letters.
It was moving sight to see the connection between father and son.
