dc.description.abstractThe Educational Ministry of Arthur L. Becker and the Founding of a
 Christian College
 An Jong-Chol
 Arthur L. Becker came to Korea as a North Methodist missionary up to 1940,
 the year that he returned to the USA. He studied natural science such as physics
 and chemistry in the small college in Mid-west USA. Therefore, his activities
 focused on science education in Korean middle schools and colleges such as Paijai
 school, Union Christian College, and Chosen Christian College etc. He believed that
 natural science was compatible so that science education was his own calling and
 missionary work. Therefore, he even supported non-christian’s education in Christian
 higher education institutions.
 Becker had different ideas from those of Northern Presbyterian Mission,
 especially Pyŏng Yang’ station since Samuel A. Moffett and William M. Baird
 believed that mission schools provide some environment where christian workers
 should be raised. Many Methodist missionaries who were mostly educational ones
 supported Becker's ideas. This position led to the situation that Becker and other
 methodist missionaries supported the idea that a college should be established in
 Seoul, the plan that Horace G. Underwood, Northern Presbyterian missionary in
 Seoul, eagerly had endorsed. It was the case that Northern Methodist decision
 helped the establishment of Chosen Christian College (Yŏnhŭi College) a lot. Since
 Becker's idea was amenable to many Koreans, his thoughts and activities shows one
 important dimension in educational thoughts. In reality, his disciples became leading
 figures in Korean science circles. Moreover, his family members were involved in
 post-war Korean situation.
