Description

This is one letter from a series of letters, generally referred to as the “Far East Letters.” The letters were written by banking executive Gaylord A. Freeman Jr. (ca. 1910-1991) to then CEO and president of First National Bank Homer J. Livingston. Freeman, along with his wife, travelled to Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Australia, and Moorea from April 23 through May 4, 1967. Often only spending a few days in each location, Freeman described his observations of the economic and cultural climate. Some of the letters also include maps illustrating data such as population, geographical information, and economy. Multiple copies of these letters were forwarded to Freeman’s colleagues and friends. This collection includes the copies sent to John S. Moore.
