The University Libraries presents Associate Librarian Julie Wang’s discussion of “Charles Daniel Tenney’s Odyssey in China” during a brown bag session at noon Wednesday, Feb. 4, in LS-2504G, Administrative Conference Room, the Bartle Library.
Tenney made significant contributions in bridging the East and West in the late 19th and early 20- centuries. His idealistic devotion and practical efforts deeply impacted Chinese higher education 100 years ago. Regrettably, for more than half a century, his name was forgotten due to severed connections between the United States and China. Who is Tenney? What did he do in China a century ago that may inspire people today? Join this presentation to find out.
Light refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend.
