The Muzza Eaton Collection documents the lives of Muzza Rosenstein and her Russian emigrant family in Harbin, Dairen, and Shanghai, China before they moved to the United States after World War II.
Muzza Eaton was born in September 1930 in Harbin to Russian parents Osher Mendeley Rosenstein and Polina Alexeevna Bykova. Her mother's name was changed to Lea Abramovna after she converted to her husband's Jewish faith. Eaton lived in Harbin for six years, where her father was part owner of the Palace Hotel. Her younger brother Mark Rand was also born in Harbin. The family moved to Dairen, and she began school at the Maryknoll Academy. The family then moved to Shanghai in 1939, where she attended the Public and Thomas Hanbury School for Girls and the Shanghai Jewish School. In 1946 she moved to the United States to attend Simmons College in Boston.
