On offer is a super, significant photograph album detailing an important 1929 through 1930 'Oriental Study Expedition' requested and underwritten by the well known Durfee Foundation, wherein ten Pomona College students traveled on a one-year expedition to China. Some later pictures show them in Mongolia in 1931 and Bulgaria in 1934. The book was kept and we assume compiled by Oliver H. Haskell (b.1908) who later served as director of the China Aid Council of the American League for Peace and Democracy and traveled through the Soviet Union. He reflected on relations between China and Russia and the impact of the 1930 expedition on his adult life. There are approximately 112 snapshot photographs contained in old disbound album. The photos are for the most part good but it must be noted that the album proper is a wreck. Casual research finds that in a series of interviews in 1989 Mr. Haskell discussed his family background and early life, his initial career objectives and political views, his relationship with Avery and Tsui, his involvement in the Expedition despite his own initial rejection of the idea. He discussed his prior knowledge of China and Japan, his first impressions, and he relates the social activities of the group, the attitudes of the Chinese students and famine relief work. Other interviews record the recollections of these men as to: planning the expedition; the year of travel in China; and their reflections on the impact the trip had on their lives. The interviews are part of an Oriental Study Expedition Archive housed in Special Collections of the Honnold Library at Claremont Graduate University. Pomona College is a private, residential, liberal arts college in Claremont, California. The founding member of the Claremont Colleges, Pomona is a non-sectarian, coeducational school. Since 1925, the Claremont Colleges, which have grown to include five undergraduate and two graduate institutions, have provided Pomona's student body with the resources of a larger university while preserving the closeness of a small college.
