He was associated with the Peking Union Medical College. Robert Bradfield was born in China. The scrapbooks date from ca. 1932 to 1938. Two of the volumes contain photographs of China, including many images of Peking and environs. One of the scrapbooks contains memorabilia, probably collected by Mrs. Vergil Bradfield, including newspaper accounts of Japanese military activities, invitations, and Chinese ephemera. The remaining scrapbook contains photostatic copies of illustrated Chinese medical texts dealing primarily with unusual or abnormal conditions. The texts include English translations.
