Dr. Willoughby Hemingway and family: Clarence’s brother, Dr. Willoughby “Will” Hemingway and his wife, Mary W. (Williams) Hemingway were missionaries to China engaged in medical and evangelistic work in Taiku. Willoughby was born April 1, 1874 in Oak Park, Illinois. He was a member of the First Congregational Church in Oak Park since 1886. He graduated from Oberlin College in 1898 and from Rush Medical College in 1901. After serving as an intern in Chicago Baptist Hospital, 1901-1903, he did post-graduate work at Chicago Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat College in 1903. At the age of sixteen he was drawn to missionary work and focused his academic pursuits to achieve the goal of being a missionary.
Mary Williams was born in Kalgan by the Great Wall of China on August 3, 1875, the daughter of the Rev. Mark Williams. Her mother was the daughter of Rev. Stephen Riggs who served as a missionary to the Sioux from 1837 until his death. Mary graduated from Oberlin College in 1899 and studied in Moody Bible Institute and Armour Institute. She taught at the A.M.A. Indian School, 1901-1902, and joined the First Congregational Church in Oak Park in 1903.
On October 1, 1903, Will and Mary married. They were commissioned as missionaries of the American Board on October 18th, and sailed form San Francisco on October 31st.

With his family, Dr. Will enjoyed furloughs in the U. S. from July 1911 to July 1912 and August 1919 through the July 1920. In 1927 they returned to the U.S. due to security concerns about the war in China.

One is a thank you note for a folding organ, written in Chinese with an English translation, from Chao Yu Luan, an evangelist at Western Valley Village in China, 1907 to Dr. Clarence Hemingway who had donated the organ. In the Grace Hall Hemingway series there are Mary W. Hemingway letters to Grace, 1948-1949 and a 1943 letter from Isabel “Izzy” Hemingway to Grace. Also, in Grace’s extended family correspondence there is an October 26, 1917 letter (copy) from Mary “May” to her parents re: the death of her son, Stephen in China. (He died three weeks before she wrote the letter.). In it she mentions her daughters, Adelaide (the eldest), Isabel in the middle, and Winifred (just beginning to talk) and how they are each coping with the loss. Stephen was at least three when he died. Also in the Programs, Service Bulletins of the First Congregational Church, 1920 and 1927 (in Box 9) there are photographs of the family and biographies.
