Bill Einreinhofer is an Emmy Award-winning documentary producer/director and emeritus chair of the New York Film Academy's Broadcast Journalism department. For more than 30 years, he has been making films and stories in and about China, including China: Frame by Frame, Unsettled History: America, China and the Doolittle Tokyo Raid, and Shanghai 1937: Where World War II Began. Over 1000 digital video, image, audio, and text files used by Einreinhofer to create the documentaries are now available online in USC Libraries' newly acquired Bill Einreinhofer China Archive.
