Description
The Werner von Boltenstern Shanghai Photograph and Negative Collection consists of negatives and photographs of Shanghai, China, in the later 1930s and 1940s. Especially valuable are the images of Jewish refugees from Nazi-ruled Europe living in Shanghai.
Background
Werner von Boltenstern (1904-1978) was born in Berlin, Germany, and supposedly earned two doctorates. He also developed a keen interest in photography and postcards. A world traveler beginning in 1929, von Boltenstern, because he was a photographer, is probably responsible for the photographs and negatives in the Shanghai Jewish Refugee Collection. He is, at least, responsible for collecting them.
Extent
15 negative and print boxes; 1 legal size archival document box
