My father sent this as a gift to my mother when he went first returned to China before WWII.
My grandfather, Julean H. Arnold, from 1902 and until his retirement in 1940 devoted himself to China and U.S. relations.
Father, Harrison Arnold, was born in China on October 30, 1909 and after graduating college returned there working for Ford Motor Company’s export division.
My father’s brother, Julean Arnold – yes the same name as grandfather without the middle name – was born in China in 1915 and devoted more than 20 years to the U.S. State department and served in Brazil, Paris, and Saigon.
Mom and Dad traveled to China in 1950 and after their return to Hawaii, I was born in April of 1951.
