Jade Snow Wong Born 1922 Died 2006 Nationality USA Period 1950-1980 Genres autobiography Notable work(s) Fifth Chinese Daughter Jade Snow Wong (Chinese: 黃玉雪; pinyin: Huáng Yùxuě) (1922 - 16 March 2006) was an American ceramic artist and author of two autobiographical volumes.[1] Contents 1 Biography 2 Literary and artistic work 3 Notes 4 See also 5 Critical studies Biography This section requires expansion. Wong was born in San Francisco and brought her family that maintained traditional Chinese customs. Due to the high importance her family placed on education and her own desire to learn, Wong graduated from Mills College in 1942 with a hard-earned Phi Beta Kappa key. She worked as a secretary during World War II, and discovered a talent for ceramics. When she began to sell her work in a shop in Chinatown, it quickly found popularity. Literary and artistic work In 1950, Wong published the first of her two autobiographical volumes, Fifth Chinese Daughter. The book was translated into several Asian languages by the U.S. State Department, which sent her on a four-month speaking tour of Asia in 1953. "I was sent," Wong wrote, "because those Asian audiences who had read translations of Fifth Chinese Daughter did not believe a female born to poor Chinese immigrants could gain a toehold among prejudiced Americans." Her second volume, No Chinese Stranger, was published in 1975. Wong's pottery was later displayed in art museums across the United States, including a 2002 exhibition at the Chinese Historical Society of America.[2] Towards the end of her life, Wong ran a travel service in San Francisco, and died there in 2006.
