The expansion of China knowledge in the U.S. in the first half of the 20th century resulted mainly from extraordinary efforts by both Sinologists and bibliographers. Library historian and historiographer Wang Yuguang will share his research on how the early generation of Chinese American bibliographers in the U.S. such as Alfred Kaiming Chiu, Chao-ying Fang, and Tung-li Yuan made significant contribution by acquiring, classifying, cataloging, and researching Chinese source materials. Lecture in Chinese; PowerPoint slides in Chinese & English.
