Examine the relationship between China and the United States through stamps and mail. Rare stamp proofs from the China Bureau of Engraving and Printing (1912-1928) reveal commerce and culture between 1860 and 1980, while American stamps tell the story of Chinese Americans from the Gold Rush to today's celebration of Lunar New Year.
