Biographical / Historical

Anna Louise Strong was born in Nebraska and educated at Oberlin and the University of Chicago. Later moving to Seattle, she was the editor of the Seattle Union Record. She travelled extensively to Russia and China, and she wrote accounts of those journeys. In 1921 she travelled to famine-struck areas in Russia as part of an American Quaker relief committee. Her interests included labor issues, child welfare, the Soviet Union, and the People's Republic of China. During World War II she defended the policies of Stalin, and afterward remained faithful to her belief that her most important role was to popularize the thought of Lenin, Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung. She died in Beijing in 1970.
