zoom to print --- From Don Menzi, --- Stanley Fairchild has copies of a magazine article by William A. Smith, the artist with the OSS team who spent a month in Weihsien after liberation. It includes several of Smith's sketches, including the attached one, which he titles, "A Eurasian boy, one of my special friends" There probably weren't many Eurasian boys in the camp, and I'm curious to know if anyone recognizes the boy in Smith's sketch. The article includes some other sketches ---
