They provide context for the materials described as well as a contents

In addition to the collections of personal papers described below, the following collections include documentation on the individual’s
participation in that program but to a much lesser extent:
Papers of a Yale-educated architect whose major professional work included several projects in China such as Yale-in-China, Changsha, China, 1913-1923, and Yenching University, Peking, China, 1918-1932. He also wrote and lectured on Chinese architecture.
The material consists of photographs and slides, correspondence, diaries, maps, banners, Chinese language documents, memoirs, scrolls, and ephemera documenting activities and experiences from the Yale-China program.
Papers of an educational missionary at Boone College, Wuchang, who organized the Metric Association of China in 1910, and who studied provincial weights and measures and standardized them on metric standards for the Chinese government.
Records documenting the founding and operations of the Yale Foreign Missionary Society and its successors, including the present day Yale-China Association. Included are administrative records, photographs, movies, and printed materials.
Papers of a Yale educated (M.A., 1948) Chinese woman who, with her husband, Zhang Ifan (L.D.S., 1948) were victims of anti-rightist movements in China. Zhu has worked with and befriended many of the English Language Instructors (ELIs) in the Yale-China Association program since ties were re-established between Yale and Hunan Medical University in 1979. Papers are in Chinese and English.
