Swedish physician and missionary Joel Eriksson stayed in Inner Mongolia with his family and the Swedish Mongolian Mission from 1913 to 1938.

During his stay, he documented the lives of both the missionaries and the local population with his camera. The photographic collection was donated by Joel Eriksson to Uppsala University Library in 1985, and is now available in Alvin: Missionary Joel Eriksson's photographs from Mongolia ca 1913-1938.
