Abstract

No attention given to missionaries and collaboration – a very controversial subject. Using examples from medical missionaries. Medical missionaries different from other missionary groups because they had access to and were gate keepers for specialist medical materials that were useful to the enemy, eg drugs and medical equipment. Because initially medical missionaries were third party nationals the Japanese could not just requisition these items as they were to do after Pearl Harbor. So medical missionaries stood as a physical barrier between the Japanese and these items of great value. This was a position that can only have added to the tensions between the Japanese and medical missionaries.
