Title:

Caroline Schulz Service papers, 1919-1997

Creator/Contributor:

Service, Caroline Schulz, 1909-1997, creator

Creator/Contributor:

Service, John S. (John Stewart), 1909-1999, correspondent.

Abstract:

Correspondence with family and friends, writings, and a small amount of personal papers. The bulk of letters are from Jack, her husband, including some early correspondence written while he was in China before their marriage. Also of interest is some early correspondence from Caroline to her family regarding her life in China upon first settling there with Jack, as well as subsequent family developments and events. The bulk of Caroline's correspondence with friends was written after the Service's had resettled in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1970s, but also includes a small amount of her frequent correspondence later in life with several newspaper and journal editors concerning various issues and concerns. Caroline's writings consist of articles, editorials, poetry, and personal trip journals. These often incorporated her personal experiences in China as well as revealed her political and humanistic concerns.
