The Iris Chang Papers consist primarily of her research materials from her work on
Thread of the Silkworm with a few files which may have been used for
The Rape of Nanking and
The Chinese in America. The content is broken down according to Chang’s own notes. Chang was a meticulous researcher and her files are arranged
according to subject matter, and are labeled according to her own methods. The series consists of 66 boxes and includes photographs
and digital image files.
"Maybe the best young historian we've got, because she understands that to communicate history, you've got to tell the story
in an interesting way." - Stephen Ambrose
