  • Abstract

    This collection contains photographs, 16mm films, personal documents, and news clippings that record Mark L. Moody's residence in East Asia. Moody first went to Asia in 1919 as part of a YMCA team in Vladivostok. He married Alla Mae Simpson, a YMCA colleague, and they moved to Shanghai, where Moody owned a Chrysler dealership during the 1920s and 1930s, and travelled widely. The collection reflects his business, family, and recreational activities and interests.
