English-language books used by Mary Andrews while on missionary service

  • AU AU-MTC 093/27
  • Series
  • 1938-1951

This series contains English-language books, mostly hardcovers, which were most likely used by Mary Andrews during her missionary service in China. It contains theological works, religious texts such as Prayer Books, nursing, pastoral and general advice texts, and a small amount of fiction and poetry.
It is impossible to determine definitively whether some of these texts were used on the mission field. Consideration has been given to the condition of the volumes (showing wear or water damage from travel), the context and topicality, and the publication date. Mary Andrews would later come into possession of tomes from the Deaconess House library, as well as texts inherited from various acquaintances and ecclesiastical figures, so an early publication date is not in itself conclusive evidence that any given volume ever travelled to China. This series excludes texts in Chinese (including English-Chinese Bibles and phrasebooks), and Bibles (see series 26).

Andrews, Mary Maria

Prayer letters distributed during missionary service

  • AU AU-MTC 093/5
  • Series
  • 1947-1951

This series contains prayer letters sent by Mary Andrews to CMS to be distributed to supporters, written between 1947 and 1951 during her time in China; and also letters and drafts of letters written for publication in the CMS "Round World" magazine, with an intended audience of children.
These letters are intended for a praying audience, and contain particulars of Mary Andrews' life and ministry in China as well as devotional commentary and descriptions of her state of mind, health, encouragement, and other concerns.
The prayer-letters in this series had been previously set apart and placed in acid free folders. New series numbers have since been added and fasteners replaced with plastic paper-clips, but no other changes have been made.
The published versions of some of the "The Round World" articles have been placed in series 13.
This series was originally combined with Series 6.

  • AU AU-MTC 067/8
  • Series
  • 1917-1963

This is a printed version dated 20 August 1917. The Constitution covers the
history of the Institution, the role of the Trustees and the declaration of trusts.

Synod Standing Committee on the Role of Deaconess House.

Deaconess Institution

Minutes of the [Deaconess] House Committee

  • AU AU-MTC 067/3
  • Series
  • 1960-1972

These are the copies of the minutes retained by Mary Andrews . They appear to supplement the official copies of the Minutes which are held by Anglican
Deaconess Ministries but whose holdings appear to cease in 1943.
The business of the House Committee was to consider domestic staff and the business of daily management of the College. Including the acceptance of
candidates, bursaries, syllabus and practical training, properties, building repairs and expansion
This set is fragmentary prior to 1964. They are roughly sorted only. No item list
has been prepared.

Deaconess Institution

Deaconess House Board of Reference meetings

  • AU AU-MTC 067/5
  • Series
  • 1960-1973

It was the role of the Board of Reference to consider applicants for entry to
Deaconess House for Training and to determine who would be selected. The
Board comprised the Principal, Chaplain for Deaconesses and between 4 and 6 lay and clerical members usually members of the Institute Board. The series contains details of the qualifications and parish work of the applicants.

Deaconess Institution

Deaconess House Board of Studies meetings

  • AU AU-MTC 067/6
  • Series
  • 1974

The Board of Studies was formed by a resolution of the Management Committee of Deaconess House on 8 August 1974 . The purpose of the board was to prepare a submission for the Australian College of Theology for a Diploma of Ministry. The Board comprised Rev S. Giltrap (Chairman), Deaconesses M. Andrews, J. Lawrence and M. Rodgers, Mrs I. Hall and Rev. G. Glassock. The members met Dr G.B. Knox and Dr W. Dumbrell to discuss matters that arose in conjunction with Mooore College. It appears that the role of the Board ceased after three meetings.

Deaconess Institution

Letters received by the Principal

  • AU AU-MTC 067/2
  • Series
  • 1951-1975

The series consists of letters received by Mary Andrews in her official capacity as Principal of Deaconess House. Some of the letters are addressed to 'Head
Deaconess' an office that Mary Andrews held concurrently with the office of
Principal and beyond her retirement. Selection of the letters in this series has been made on an individual basis based on the subject of the letter. Letters include matters to do with candidates, their placements, monetary donations.
The letters are placed in bundles according to decade. The is no precise sorting
within the bundles. The papers have not been placed into acid free folders. No item listing has been made. Series numbers only are written on the folders. More detailed work needs to be performed at a later date.

Deaconess Institution

Draft autobiography and related papers

  • AU AU-MTC 093/12
  • Series
  • 1938-1975

Mary had a strong sense of her role in history. Following her return from China her roles as Principal of Deaconess House and as Head Deaconess saw her taking a unique position in women’s ministry, she was tireless at taking every opportunity to address church groups of various kinds on her twin loves as missionary work in China and women’s ministry; she kept copious diaries.[See Series 2, 1932-1996] She played a major role in many organisations developed to foster women’s ministry and she was a figure in some secular organisations This sense of being chosen led to her prepare an autobiography. The manuscript was offered to Anzea Publications but on 1 March 1975 the Manager advised that no-one was available to edit the manuscript for publication. It is unknown whether she offered it to other publishers.
The original order of the manuscripts in this series is unclear. There is one major sequence of 88 pages but many drafts particularly of her period in China. The major section was originally in a folder with several other sections. The page numbering was not helpful in determining the order so this material has been treated as one item. Other sequences were identified separately and each sequence has been considered separate item.
It is possible that she prepared more than one draft. And also likely the the various drafts on her period in China were used as source material by Margaret Yarwood Lamb whose partial biography 'Going it Alone: Mary Andrews - missionary to China 1938 to 1951' published by Aquila Press in 1995 is confined to Mary’s formative years and missionary service.
This series also includes material that appears to have been collected for the purposes of a biography - letters, reports, short histories. This material includes letters to family members and circulars for the mission field; her license to serve as a female Deacon in Shaohsing-Chekiang, March 1948; news clippings.
