Browse This Collection

The Harriett Morris digital collection, drawn from the Walter Morris Family Papers, provides autobiographical, pictorial, and published documentation of Harriett Morris’s life, most notably as a missionary and teacher of home economics in Korea from the 1920s through the 1950s. Harriett’s 1923-1926 diary provides first-hand insight into the challenges of establishing a home economics program for female college students at Ewha College (now known as Ewha Womans University), located in Seoul. The diary also records the diverse professional and personal relationships she had with Koreans and fellow Americans. Also of interest are the commendations Harriett received during the 1970s and 1980s for her varied accomplishments, as well as images of Korean handicrafts she collected.
