|Emily Georgiana Kemp|
Kemp as shown in the preface to her book The Face of China (1909)
She travelled in China, Korea, India, central Asia and the Amazon, sketching, painting and writing, with a focus on the education and welfare of women, and their role in religion.
Kemp was friendly with the theologian Marcus Dods, the explorer Francis Younghusband and Albert Schweitzer. She donated the chapel at Somerville College as a "house of prayer for all people" (that is, of all religions).
