William (Bill) Gaddis was born in Berkeley, California in 1920.  Gaddis was about ten years old when his father, a Captain in the United States Navy, was posted to command a ship on the China Station. He spent two years in Shanghai and Manila with his mother and sister while his father was at sea. While in Manila, Gaddis attended the American School and participated in local theater. During his travels he collected a number of playbills, menus, business cards, and maps which he organized into scrapbooks.
