The Ann B. Mundelein Collection, available at the Center for Western Studies, consists largely of correspondence and photographs. Ann Mundelein engaged in evangelistic work in China from 1922 to 1933. She returned to New York City and moved to Sioux Falls in 1935 to become Religious Education Director for the Episcopal District of South Dakota, remaining there until 1958. The letters are mostly written from Ann to her sister, Clara M. Smith. Ann signs many of the letters as "The Kid." The photographs are from her time in China; quite a few are unidentified. The included four photo albums cover many different subjects. Also included are travel journals from Ann's father when he journeyed by sea to Europe, Africa, China, and Japan.
