The Gamble family embarked on a voyage to Asia in March of 1908, just as their new winter home in Pasadena was under construction. Their agenda was not that of idle sightseers. The Gambles set their itinerary to immerse themselves and their two younger sons in a cultural experience throughout China, Japan, and Korea, and to see first-hand the results of several philanthropic projects they supported abroad. The photographs and journal that document their trip provide an extraordinary glimpse of Asia in 1908 and also reveal the Gambles as a family who were inquisitive about new experiences and the world around them. Miriam Reed’s work brings light to the Gambles’ experiences and the art objects for their new home with which the family returned.
