Scope and Contents

Collection consists of a carbon typescript (8 pages) with editing notes, later published in V. 26, "The Johns Hopkins Alumni Magazine" as "Bombs and Bayonets in Wuhu." The typescript is in the form of a letter, dated January 14, 1938. It describes aerial attacks and subsequent invasion of Wuhu, China by the Japanese army in December 1937. The letter is signed "One Who Has Seen War." A holographic note identifies four graduates of the Johns Hopkins Medical School: W.K. May, Lorenzo Seymour Morgan, Ruth Bennet Morgan, and Y.C. Yui. These four were attatched to the staff of the Wuhu General Hospital in Anhwei Provence, China. They requested anonymity since they remained at the hospital during the Japanese occupation of Wuhu.
