Did you have a relative who was interned in China or Hong Kong by the Japanese?

Wanted: China Directories, 1920-1950

A very helpful tool for my research about Westerners in China are the directories which were published for Shanghai, as well as the many other cities in China.  If you have Hong Lists, City Directories, Comacrib Directories, Dollar Directories, or other published lists from the 1920-1950 period, I would be very interested in learning what you have.
