CHARLES B. MICHAEL. Letter; March 10, 1932. .1 cu. ft.

Charles B. Michael was a missionary working in Quinhagak and the Kuskokwim Valley in the 1930s. Michael was in charge of the missionary station, radio transmitter, and light generating station in Quinhagak. This was probably a Moravian mission.

This collection consists of a single letter written by missionary Charles B. Michael, in Quinhagak, Alaska, to an unnamed friend in Dover, dated March 10, 1932. In the two page letter he describes his appreciation for the prayers of other missionaries, and offers praise for the work of Brother Couillard. He notes that he has problems due to the language barrier, and a lack of familiarity with local residents. Michael also mentions how difficult it is to maintain the mission and light station. Finally, he asks his friend to join with him in prayer for additional missionary staff.

This collection was acquired by the archives in 2002.
