Biographical/historical information

Miss Browne is a native of Sussex, Virginia and a graduate of Madison College. After attending graduate school at Scarritt College, she was sent to Manchuria in 1926.

Scope and arrangement

Her work at Harbin, Manchuria, among White Russians led to her transfer to Warsaw, Poland, where she remained until 1938. After World War II she returned to Poland where she taught until the Communists expelled her in 1949. She was next assigned to Liberia and operated a girls dorm in Monrovia at the College of West Africa. Miss Browne's interview discusses these aspects of her career.
