This project investigates the role of MN missionaries, who alerted the world to grave human rights violations against Armenians in the Ottoman Empire while simultaneously providing humanitarian aid. Substantial and underexplored materials in the Minnesota History archives were used to study ways in which these two tasks may conflict but also forge an alliance, for the time of the Armenian genocide.
This research was supported by the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).
