Description

Original notes, photographs, maps and other materials from G. William Skinner's 1949 trip to southwest China.

Skinner, a Cornell University graduate student, went to southwest China to conduct field research on rural social structure. He settled near the market town of Gaodianzi, Sichuan, and lived there for two and a half months, until the newly arrived Communists asked him to leave.
During his time in Sichuan, Skinner kept detailed field notes and took scores of photos of rural life and unfolding events.
