Extensive presentation inscription on the occasion of a 50th anniversary reunion of the alumni of St. John's Medical School. Inscribed by Martha McCracken Howard, one of Josiah McCracken's daughters. ; 276 pages; Joe was an All-American football star and a medal winner in the shot put and the hammer throw in the 1900 Olympics. But it was as a medical missionary to China, under the auspices of the Christian Association of the University of Pennsylvania that he found his calling. He made his most lasting mark [leading] the medical college of St. John's University and [helping] Chinese refugees who flooded into Shanghai after the Japanese invasion. [T]he book is just as much ... about his wife Helen and the trials and joys of raising eight children. It is also the story of their third daughter, Mary, who was crippled by polio before she was two and who fought courageously for over thirty years to live a normal life. Taken together, they become the story of a large, close-knit missionary family in China during the turbulent years of 1907-1941.
