She went on to help establish the program of library education at Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea, from 1956 to 1960. Also included are several books in Chinese from the personal collection of writer, poet, and San Jose State University English professor Esther Shephard. This collection is arranged into three series: Series I. Bound and Unbound Books; Series II. Scrolls; and Series III. Ephemera.
