Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Kliene family lived in Shanghai from 1922 to 1947, and consisted of Albert, Fernande, and their three sons Albert (Bert), Denis, and Ronald. All three brothers were active members of the British Boy Scouts Association serving with the 9th Western District Public School Group and the 7th Rover Scout Crew. The collection consists of materials related to publications researched and written by both Denis and Ronald Kliene about the history of the Shanghai Volunteer Corps, the 9th Group history, and the history of other Boy Scout and International Scout groups in Shanghai. Also included are materials collected by Bert, including a Glengarry worn by the Scottish Company of the Shanghai Volunteer Corps and Chinese postage stamps.
The Kliene family consists of Albert Kliene, his wife Fernande, and their three sons Albert (Bert), Denis and Ronald. Albert was a Danish citizen who had voluntarily fought for the British during World War I, before settling in France with his wife Fernande and their first son, Bert, who was born in 1920. The family moved to Shanghai in 1922, where Albert worked for the Shanghai Municipal Council, and where Denis and Ronald were born soon after.
