Newsnote: Vincentiana Purchase of the Week: Edward Young, C.M. missionary in Kanchow (1932)

Recently purchased by the Vincentiana collection at DePaul University’s archives and special collections, this 1932 press photo features the Rev. Edward Young, C.M., a missionary from the Eastern Province of the Vincentians headquartered in Germantown, Pennsylvania. The province’s Chines mission was headquartered in Kanchow. The text fails to note that Young had in 1929 been captured and held for ransom by the communist forces. For more information on Young see American Vincentians (Cape Girardeau: Vincentian Studies Institute, 1987), p. 377.
