Pearl S. Buck International

1 Dec 2016

A National Historic Landmark, the site interprets the life and work of Buck, a writer, advocate, and humanitarian, and the first woman to receive both the Pulitzer and Nobel Prizes for literature. Buck founded the Welcome House Adoption Agency in 1949, and in 1964 founded the Pearl S. Buck Foundation as a child sponsorship organization to help children in their own countries with health, education, and job training. Both initiatives are still functioning today, under the umbrella of Pearl S. Buck International.
