Juliet was in China for a period of two to three years. While she was there, apart from actively using her medical knowledge, she also made sure that she captured the energy, life and character of China through the most accessible medium she had—photography. The following photographs were all taken by Juliet while she was in China. They embody her artistic spirit, while ensuring that the reality of the situation that the Chinese people lived in was captured..

Shanghai, China

Dear Doctor Chisholm:

I was extremely happy to hear from you and to have your interesting record of the serious situation as it exists in China today. I have recently had two letters from one of my former internes, Dr. Du Swun Deh, of the University Hospital, Chengtu, Szechwan. I have told him that you are in Shenghai and if you would have an opportunity I wish you would look him up. I know that he is a long way from Shanghai, but you might in the course of your travels be sent to that province.

Everyone was very interested in seeing your letter and we were so glad to hear from you. The work is now progressing in a most satisfactory manner here. Both Ebbs and Silverthorne are now 100 percent full-time, with about five or six others part-time and the work is on a higher level than ever. I'd be glad to hear from you at any time and will look forward to seeing you on your return.

With best wishes and kind regards,

Yours sincerely,
Alan Brown, M.D.
Physician-in-Chief
