Soo Yong in her Chinese novelty shop - Winter Park, Florida
Shelf number: 030986.
Soo Yong is an unusual retiree to Florida. She has played many important Chinese roles in Hollywood productions and is still called back to the west when there is a special need for her talent. Living in Winter Park, she spends part time assisting her husband in running "The Jade Lantern", a luxurious Chinese novelty shop. Each winter she goes on tour giving a monologue performance on Chinese life. So, while Hollywood still beckons she still insists that Florida is her home.
