In 1917 Dr. and Mrs. Bailey and their younger daughter Ethel sailed from San Francisco to visit their older daughter Sara in Shanghai. Bailey traveled through China, sometimes with his family and sometimes alone, from Shanghai to Nanking and Hangchow, Ch’i-hsien, up the Yangtse River to Kiukiang and Kuling, Hankow and Wuchang, and then, via rail to Kioshan, collecting specimens of trees, ornamental plants and garden crops. His entire collection totaled about 730 species in 482 genera. From his studies of these specimens, he later revised the classification of many common food plants, especially the members of Brassica, which includes the kales, mustards, cabbages, Brussels sprouts, turnips, and cauliflowers.
