Georgia Assistant Commissioner, Letters Sent, Volume 5 (15), Oct. 10, 1866–Feb. 4, 1867, Part 3

The Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands, often referred to as the Freedmen’s Bureau, was established on March 3, 1865. The duties of the Freedmen’s Bureau included supervision of all affairs relating to refugees, freedmen, and the custody of abandoned lands and property. These documents come from the Records of the Assistant Commissioner for Georgia, Series 1: Letters Sent. PLEASE NOTE: Press copies were made by moistening a piece of thin paper and pressing it on the original letter through the use of a press copying machine, which transferred some of the ink to the moistened paper. Because of the relative crudeness of this method, many of the press copies are difficult to read and some are virtually illegible. Please mark any illegible text as [[illegible]]. Additional resources are available on the Freedmen's Bureau Instructions Page. Please help us transcribe these records to learn more about the lives of formerly enslaved men and women in Georgia during the Reconstruction Era.

Lee Ya-Ching Papers - Correspondence [1]

Lee Ya-Ching was a flying Good Will Ambassador for United China Relief during World War II. The daughter of a Hong Kong industrialist, Lee Ya-Ching attended school in England in 1933 and she began her flight training at Switzerland's Cointrin-Ecole d'Aviation, obtaining the first pilot's license ever granted by the school to a woman. She later continued her training at the Boeing School of Aviation, in Oakland, California. In 1936, Lee Ya-Ching returned to China where she made an air survey of 30,000 miles for the Chinese Army and was appointed instructor of the Shanghai Municipal Air School until the outbreak of war caused the school to close. From 1938 until 1943, Lee Ya-Ching flew across the United States and then Latin America soliciting funds for the benefit of Chinese war victims.
