In 1893 Charles Frederick Reeve (1859-1941) established the Poona and Indian Village Mission, one of the few missions founded in Australasia. It flourished under his leadership for the first ten years before major problems surfaced, continuing in outreach and mission until 1968. This article examines Reeve’s life, personality, and impact, and also the influence on him of his decade with the Brethren in Hobart, Tasmania. It seeks to rescue him from unwonted academic oblivion.
