    Mrs. Haskell’s $30,000 Gift

    In The Home Missionary, January, 1892, a strong plea was made for means with which to provide a home for the orphan children. In that journal were the names of those whose pledges for the home amounted to $17,716—too small an amount, the promoters of the enterprise thought, for so large an undertaking, hence a delay in the execution of the work was feared. But He who sees the end from the beginning, and who owns the “cattle upon a thousand hills,” so ordered events that a wealthy lady not of our faith, Mrs. Caroline E. Haskell, of Chicago, widow of Mr. Frederick Haskell, on hearing of this contemplated work of charity, at once placed at the disposal of the building committee the sum of $30,000, with the simple stipulation that it be wholly used in building an orphanage according to the plans previously outlined, that it be conducted in a broad and liberal spirit, and that the institution be called the Haskell Memorial Home in memory of her deceased husband.GSAM 369.5

    With means thus furnished the Medical Missionary and Benevolent Association was enabled, during the year, to erect and open the building as an orphans’ home. This building was dedicated Jan. 25, 1894. For much of the time since that date the family, consisting of orphans, helpers, and teachers, has averaged one hundred.GSAM 370.1
