Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Philip E. Bailey was a Lieutenant in the United States military, who was stationed in China during the final years of World War II. The collection contains a set of Chinese porcelain soup bowls, saucers and soup spoons made during the Guangxu period (1875-1908) with a card stating they are from President and Madame Chiang.
Philip E. Bailey was born on April 27th, 1923. He was drafted in the United States military in 1943, and was stationed in China at the end of World War II working as a military police officer. While in China, he met an eight-year-old local boy, Mario Machado, who he grew fond of and made arrangements with his parents to adopt him and bring him to America where he might have a better education and more opportunities for his future. Machado lived with Bailey for two years in Los Angeles, before legal issues caused the adoption to fall through and he was sent back to China.
