Item description for China's American Daughter: Ida Pruitt, 1888-1985 by Marjorie King...

A chronicle of a bicultural woman, born in the 19th century of American missionaries but raised in a small Chinese village. She lived in her adopted country for fifty years. Ida Pruitt brought a unique perspective to her notable oral history, A Daughter of Han: The Autobiography of a Chinese Working Woman and to other writings and translations. Her work with the Chinese poor at the Peking Union Medical College established social casework in China. She became an organizer of the chinese industrial cooperatives in nationalist and communist regions. She was an early advocate for the U.S. diplomatic recognition of the People's Republic of China.
