Missionary Dr. James Hugh Humphrey and his daughter, Evelyn, pose in their shelter, built to protect against Japanese bombing raids in Chengchow, China. The back of the 1939 photo reads: “This is a snap of Evelyn and her Daddy in our hole. During a raid we slip down and back in under the top you see. A big root from the tree goes over our heads making a good protection. We feel fairly safe in it. Probably take a direct hit to ‘get us.’”
