Sophie Reuter was born in Norway in 1860 and went to China as a missionary of the China Inland Mission in 1885. There she met Stanley Peregrine Smith, one of the ‘Cambridge Seven,’ and they married in 1888. She died in 1891.

This collection is of photocopies of material compiled by their only son, Algernon Charles Stanley Smith, who was himself later a missionary in Uganda and Rwanda, with some later research notes. It appears to be an attempt by the younger Smith to learn more about his mother in conversation with her Norwegian family.
