Currently on display at the Danish American Archive and Library is an exhibit that details the life and career of Dagmar Vasby, a remarkable woman who served as a medical missionary in Manchuria during World War II, and in Liberia after the war. She wrote the book Under the Cloud, which tells about her view that God’s guiding cloud led her across Stalinist Russia to Chinese Manchuria where she experienced the Japanese occupation, the ravages of WW II and the subsequent Soviet incursion. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about Dagmar is that she is still living an active life at 105 years of age! Under the Cloud can be purchased from Lur Publications, a subsidiary of the DAAL, by contacting Ruth Rasmussen at 402-426-7910, or at
