As part of its mandate to initiate and promote the production and distribution of films in the national interest, the NFB produced China Mission, a documentary film on the life of Chester A. Ronning (1892-1984), a Canadian diplomat from Alberta who spent his early life in China with his missionary parents. During World War II the NFB documented the University's contributions to the war effort in a series of photographs.
