Chinese Language Training Flashcards
Beijing, China 1934
All U.S. Foreign Service Chinese Language Officers were trained in Peking (Beijing) from 1902 until 1949, when U.S. diplomatic and consular representation on China’s mainland ceased. This set of over 2,000 handmade Chinese-English flash cards stored in a custom decorative box was used by a U.S. Foreign Service Officer assigned to Peking in 1934 in order to acquire language skills vital for his diplomatic duties.
