The Memoirs of Ma 1925-1926
About the Project
What would it be like to be an expatriate living and traveling in China in the middle of what was known as the roaring '20s at home in the United States? Join us to transcribe this diary typed by young scholar Benjamin March (1899-1934) from June 1925 to March 1926 describing his life in China. Events include March's marriage to the poet Dorothy Rowe (1898-1969) in Nanjing, their honeymoon in Hangzhou and Suzhou, and their subsequent life in Beijing.
