  • The Story of Near East Relief - Barton - 1930

(Miss), of Evanston, Illinois, went with the “Leviathan” party and taught at Hadjin. During the more than six months’ siege of the town the American compound was captured by the Turks but the diplomacy of the Near East Relief people protected the 300 orphans from the attackers. For several days the Near East Relief personally and several missionaries were forced to live in a closet under the stairs. When the Turks recaptured the buildings on June 13 the inmates were taken to a Turkish camp and held for two days before being sent on to Caesarea. Miss Cold and Miss Super shared these exciting experiences. Miss Clark left Constantinople for the U. S. A. July 10, 1920 and is now living at 1217 Forest Avenue, Evanston, Illinois.
