Description

Article features a noted Chinese speaker appearing before Richmond College Convocation. The speaker was Dr. Y. R. Chow who was a High School Superintendent in China where Richmond College student C.Y. Hui received his earlier education. Dr. Chow gave general remarks but his main focus was on "the present feeling between Chinese students and Richmond." The article discusses Richmond's connection to Canton, China (where Chow works) and how Richmond is well known throughout the population. The end of the article calls Dr. Chow "Oriental," while mentioning the work that he has done in the United States including receiving his Ph. D. from Columbia.
