Saidee Pettus Hoose was an American missionary who, along with her husband, worked and lived in China beginning in 1916. This
small collection consists of correspondence, clippings, biographical materials and a few pieces of ephemera relating to the
personal and professional life of Hoose, as well as to her husband Earl and son Harned.
Saidee Alice Pettus Hoose was an American missionary born in Mobile, Alabama in 1887. In 1915, she married Earl Albion Hoose.
In 1916 they went to China, where Earl was attached to the Methodist Mission in City of Kiukiang, and together performed missionary
work. Earl became sick in 1922 and by 1925 he began working with the American Bible Society in Peiping (now Beijing) as their
sub-agency secretary, due to his inability to perform fieldwork any longer. Saidee and Earl had four children, all of whom
were raised in Peiping until age 18, when they each left to attend college in the United States.
