expand icon Abstract
Kitty Bell was born in Paris, but moved to Shanghai at eight years of age to live with her new adoptive parents. At age 15, she was sent to an internment camp in China by the Japanese, where she met her husband, Chris Bell, who was interned at the Chapei camp outside of Shanghai. They were married soon after their release, and immigrated to the United States where they had four children. The collection mainly consists of photographs of Shanghai, the Bell family, and Chris Bell's extended family during the 1930s and 1940s. Also included are postcards from China and California, print materials saved by the Bell family, and the board game "Shanghai Millionaire."
