Ogden, K. Montgomery (Kneass Montgomery), 1881-1970

Kneass Montgomery Ogden (1881-1970) was a member of the Princeton Class of 1902. He later was on the American Red Cross Committee to Palestine (1918-1925) and in 1925 moved to China to be the bursar of Canton Christian College.

The collection consists of photographs, scrapbooks, memorabilia, and newspaper clippings of Ogden (Princeton Class of 1902). The bulk of the collection relates to the years, starting in 1925, he spent in China as bursar of Canton Christian College and contains photographs of students, faculty, friends, and views of the city, as well as scrapbooks of postcards and newspaper clippings recounting the general strike of 1925. The collection also contains memorabilia of Ogden's years as an undergraduate, including dance cards, invitations, absence notices, playbills, and examinations, and photographs of the Middle East, especially Palestine, where he spent seven years (1918-1925) with the American Red Cross Committee to Palestine.
