Rose Horowitz grew up in Shanghai, China from roughly the 1920s until the late 1940s.  Horowitz remained interested in China throughout her career, writing about her experiences in China and eventually establishing with California State University, Fullerton and the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles an Old China Hands Oral History Project. The collection consists mostly of Horowitz’s files from the Old China Hands Oral History Project, including correspondence between her and interviewees as well as her notes on the progress of the project. Also included are Horowitz’s writings and research materials, including newspaper articles and information on China, correspondence with archival institutions, and her finished works on her life as well as the Jewish experience in China.
