Excerpt from Ministers of Mercy
Although others with a knowledge of Western medicine had preceded him in missionary service, it appears quite clear that John Scudder, who sailed for India from Boston, June 8, 1819, was the first appointee whose ability as a physician received seri ous consideration. It seems quite certain that, though other physicians had gone out before Dr. Scudder, not one Of them considered himself a medical missionary nor used his knowledge Of medi cine except incidentally, if at all.
At the beginning of the modern missionary move ment, many Christians believed that their interest in other races should find its expression almost ex elusively in the oral preaching Of the gospel. Now it is known everywhere that medical missionary effort is one of the most useful forms of service.
