Diaries, Photographs, Negatives

In 1909, Thomas Chrowder Chamberlin and his son, Rollin, traveled to China as part of the Oriental Educational Investigation Commission. T.C. Chamberlin was a member of the class of 1866, a prominent educator and famous geologist. He and Rollin wrote extensive, closely observed diaries about their explorations. A gifted photographer, Rollin took dozens of photographs of China's diverse landscape and people. Our holdings include their diaries, photographic negatives, prints and leather-bound scrapbooks.
