Title

The Web 1925 "Kwan Fong Cheung"

Description

This is a picture of Kwan Fong Cheung (W'25), a senior at the University of Richmond. Cheung is from Canton (Guangzhou), China and is noted as a "true friend," a "good conversationalist," and "one of Westhampton's best in aesthetic dancing." The class profile also notes Cheung's fondness for leaving campus to dine elsewhere: "During her sojourn of two years at Westhampton we are sure that some of her pleasantest hours were spent at the FAR EAST. The Chinese food was of course enjoyed, but was that all?" Far East was a popular Chinese restaurant located in downtown Richmond.
