Website's Chinese Name: <扬子江边的哈得逊>
This website contains old photographs of Kiukiang Water of Life Hospital (九江生命活水医院) and Old China. The site illuminates the life of Dr. Edward Carter Perkins (裴敬思医生) and his wife, Ms. Georgina M. Phillip (裴家纪) from Yonkers, NY, by the banks of Hudson River. They served as Methodist missionaries in China between 1913 and 1951. The site also shows many people who worked with Dr. and Mrs. Perkins, particularly at The Water of Life Hospital (生命活水医院) that they established in 1918 in Kiukiang (江西九江), a tiny but storied town on the southern banks of the Great Yangtze River (扬子江边) in Central China. The Water of Life Hospital (九江生命活水医院) is still in existence today.
And the site serves as an introduction to a story that spans over a century
connecting the Great Yangtze River (扬子江) and the famed Hudson River (哈得逊河),
the two great streams flowing at two opposite ends of the earth.
