Product Description

Often cited as the founding father of modern Chinese higher education, Kuo Ping Wen (1880-1969) was the first Chinese to earn a Ph.D. from Teachers College, Columbia University, in 1914. This unique book celebrates Kuo’s life trajectory, achievements, and legacy: as the son of a Chinese Christian family, as a student at Wooster College and a Ph.D. recipient at Teachers College; as Founding Chancellor of Southeast University in China, and as Founder of the China Institute in New York. As an educator and statesman, Kuo was a pioneer in facilitating cross-cultural communication and understanding to bring East and West together.
