The Rockefeller Archive Center grant-in-aid gave me a rare opportunity to work with experts and materials that I would not otherwise have had the ability to examine. My project, a study of the integration of antiquities into the modern Chinese state, necessitated an understanding of the international market for Chinese art during the 1940s and 50s. The documents I found at the Rockefeller Archive Center not only illustrate the Rockefellers' own interests in Asia, but also the working lives of many Chinese art dealers and collectors, with whom the family maintained contact with throughout the twentieth century.
