C.F. CHASE PAPERS

The C.F. Chase Papers document the activities of C.F. Chase, an American mining engineer in Suan, Korea in the early 1900s. The papers consist of a ledger, unbound letters, and a few photographs. Over 130 pages in length, the ledger covers the financial side of Chase's life in Korea, and it shows the firms with which he transacted business. Also, the ledger contains carbon copies of some of Chase's letters, so some discussion about the progress at the ore mine is gleaned, Each page in the ledger is cataloged separately. The unbound letters concern mostly an adoption case. Finally, the photographs are of Korean women. The collection, a glimpse into U.S.- Korean relations in the first decade of the twentieth century, is contained in one archival box (0.25 linear feet).
