Summary
"From the rocky terrain of Northern New York and Maine, sprang generations of people who believed in the importance of education, hard work, self-reliance, and social consciousness and acted on these values. The Humanitarian Gene shares the appearance of these traits in two families that joined at Oberlin College in the 1890s and embarked on lifetime missions with the American Missionary Association and the American Board of Commissioners of Foreign Missions. The Humanitarian Gene contains letters and diaries of father and son, Ernest and Edward Partridge, and the sisters, Winona and Mary Graffam, spanning the years 1891 to 1922" -- Back cover
