Women’s History Month Collection Highlight: Dr. Anna Barbara Grey

Anna Barbara Grey was a physician in Burma and India. Her collection is now available to researchers, and the collection’s finding aid appears in the American Baptist Historical Society’s online catalog.

After a period of training in the U.S. and in London, Dr. Grey was appointed a missionary of the Women’s American Baptist Foreign Mission Society in 1922. She was instrumental in the development of the Ellen Mitchell Memorial Hospital in Burma. When the war came to Burma in 1941, Gray and the staff evacuated the patients before she went to India in January 1942. She worked as a member of the medical staff of the Victoria Memorial Mission Hospital in Hanamkonda and the American Baptist Mission Hospital in Nellore. In 1945, she returned briefly to Moulmein under the sponsorship of the Red Cross to investigate damages. She returned to the U.S. in 1957 and retired.
