Collection Overview

Biography / History
Heim, a graduate of Cornell University Medical School, came to the Mission as its first doctor and founded the hospital in 1928. He later became the Mission's first director.
Scope and Content
This was used by Heim during his travels around the country to promote and gather support for the Red Bird Mission.
These slides, photographed by H. Huber of Enola, Pennsylvania, depict customs, such as funerals; the Mission's work in religion, health care, and education; and Bell County, Kentucky landscapes. A copy of the script is also present.
These are fourth generation reproductions of the original lantern slides; therefore the image quality is poor.
