Description of Contents

The Charles S. Stephenson Papers comprise 1.25 linear feet of documentation. While they span from 1927 to 1965, the papers focus on Stephenson's time as a U.S. Navy surgeon serving with the Marine Corps Expeditionary Force, on the staff of General Smedley Butler, in northern China at the outbreak of the Chinese Civil War in 1927.

The bulk of the Stephenson Papers consists of 273 letters written by Stephenson to his fiance, Sonya Leyton (apparently the stage name of Naomi Ackley, whom Stephenson married in 1931). These letters, dated between May 15, 1927 and August 19, 1928, are often accompanied by newspaper clippings from English-language Chinese newspapers. The correspondence provides a detailed account of Stephenson's professional life as a naval medical officer, with many observations on U.S. Marine Corps hierarchy. The letters are particularly critical of Marine Brigadier General Smedley Butler, his leadership style, and tactics. The letters begin with Stephenson's duties at Shanghai, followed by his transfer to Tientsin, where he worked as both doctor and hospital administrator. Much of the focus of the letters is on medical related issues, such as venereal disease, pneumonia, appendectomies, heat stroke, traffic accidents, patient load, inadequacies of his medical staff, and complications caused by the extreme Tientsin weather. The letters also cover Stephenson's ongoing conflicts with General Smedley Butler and his Chief of Staff Miller, resulting in Stephenson's temporary relief from duty in February 1928. The correspondence concludes with Stephenson's assignment to U.S.S. Beaver (Submarine tender) in Tsingtao.

In addition to his medical responsibilities, Stephenson's letters to his fiance also contain news, commentary, and rumors regarding the political and military conditions in China, as well as Chinese life in general. The letters make frequent mention of General Chang Tso Lin (Zhang Zuolin), clashes between Northern and Southern Chinese forces, famines in the Shantung (Shandong) region, and the increasing incursion of Japanese forces on mainland China.

The remainder of the collection is dominated by photographs. While largely unidentified and undated, the photographs appear to be overwhelmingly from Stephenson's time in China in 1927 and 1928, and include images of mountainside farming in Shandong, urban life, and Chinese military activity. Among the photographs are several portraits of Stephenson.
