|Tisdale, Alice. Pioneering Where the
World is Old (Leaves from a Manchurian
Note-book). New York: Henry Holt

the Atlantic Monthly company, 1916,
Alice Tisdale Hobart (January 28, 1882 – March 14, 1967) wrote of her early travels in China and later of her life as the wife of an executive of Standard Oil Company working in China. Tisdale was present in the country when the rebellion against the Manchu Dynasty occurred in 1912. Born in New York, she briefly attended the University of Chicago. It was her experiences at the hands of the Manchurian insurgents in 1916 and the publication of that experience in the Atlantic Monthly under the title of "Leaves From a Manchurian Diary" that that led to the later publication of Pioneering Where the World is Old in 1917. This first work was followed by nearly a dozen other works.
