Scope and Contents

Series 2, U.S.-Far East Subject Files 1919-1977, consists of correspondence, publications and other materials that document the interests of both Lockwood and the IPR in U.S.-Far East relations during the 1930s and 1940s. It also contains information pertaining to U.S.-Far East trade and the Japanese, Chinese and American textile industries. Lockwood kept meticulous statistics on US and foreign textile trade in the 1920s. Of particular interest are a number of press releases issued by the Department of State with regard to the Far East, as well as Lockwood's writings on the Sino-Japanese War. Lockwood also wrote a number of reports on US research fellowships in Asia from the 1950s through the 1970s which are contained here as well.
