While the scrapbook focuses largely on her time at Simmons College, Alice Morris Walker led an adventurous and eventful life both before and after her collegiate years as well. Prior to her arrival at Simmons, Alice was raised in Shanghai, China, where her parents worked as missionaries. After graduating from Simmons, Alice returned to China where she held several positions as a librarian. She later left China to travel and live all over the world.
