Scope and Contents

The Old China Hands Oral History Project Collection consists of over 150 interviews with "Old China Hands," individuals who lived in China before or shortly after 1949. Interviews discuss various topics, including daily life in China, interactions with and impressions of the local Chinese, experiences of historic events like World War II and Japanese occupation, and escaping the country after the Communist takeover of the country.
Many of the interviews were recorded at Old China Hands reunions, most notably at a 1996 reunion in Las Vegas, Nevada, and a 2006 reunion in Portland, Oregon.
The collection is divided into two series, Digital Audio (1996-2012), and Audiocassettes (2005).
