Summary The 1919 World?s Fair of Evangelical Americanism was used as a way to promote mission trips around the world. The fair functioned as a venue of exchange between the viewer and the viewed. On one level it educated visitors on the history of Methodist world missions. On another level it provided an opportunity to literally watch people from around the world in recreated native homes on the fairground pavilions. Visitors to the exposition could tour eight international pavilions and watch foreigners at work, cleaning up recreated homes, or simply eating native foods
