China in Another Time: A Personal Story

Born in rural China to Canadian parents in 1899, the late Claire Malcolm Lintilhac became a traveling nurse who lived and worked in the country until 1950, a year after the start of Communist rule. China in Another Time is Claire’s account of those tumultuous years, drawn from her writings and recorded storytelling, with brief historical sidebars, more than 160 vintage photos and drawings and an introduction by an eminent China scholar. Claire’s story opens a unique, revealing window onto China’s great struggle to throw off its feudal past, end foreign domination, and become its own modern nation.


Claire Malcolm Lintilhac was born on December 20, 1899 in Henan Province, North China, and died in 1984 in Stowe. Except for the World War II years, when she and her son Philip were evacuated to the U.S. while her husband was interned by the Japanese, Claire lived in China until 1950, when the Lintilhacs made it out of Shanghai a year after witnessing the Communist Party’s victory over the Nationalists. After her husband’s untimely passing in 1957, Claire started the Lintilhac Foundation, which continues to support maternal and child health, clean water, renewable energy and land conservation in Vermont.
