J.M. McCaleb was a Christian missionary who spent nearly fifty years of service in Japan from 1892-1941. The collection includes
scrapbooks, clippings, correspondence, and publications both written and compiled by McCaleb.
John Moody (J.M.) McCaleb was born on September 25, 1861, in Duck River, Tennessee, to John and Jane McCaleb. At just six
months of age, McCaleb lost his father who was shot and killed by a fellow Union Army soldier during the Civil War. The incident
left Jane alone to raise six boys and to manage 365 acres of farmland.
