F.Y. Chang HLS Graduation Centennial Exhibit now on display

F.Y. Chang portraitAs part of its 50th anniversary celebration, the East Asian Legal Studies (EALS) program at Harvard Law School presents the “F.Y. Chang HLS Graduation Centennial Exhibit.”

Fu-yun Chang (张福运) (1890-1983) was a noted educator, diplomat, statesmen, and art collector.  After graduating from Harvard College in 1914, he became the first Boxer Indemnity Scholar to graduate from Harvard Law School in 1917. He went on to become China’s first Director General of the National Customs Administration and led to the achievement of China’s tariff autonomy from foreign government control. The F.Y. Chang HLS Graduation Centennial Exhibit presents key moments from his life and work, offering a glimpse into a particular time in world history, the history of China and the United States, and of Harvard Law School. As the East Asian Legal Studies program celebrates its first five decades during the HLS Bicentennial year, this exhibit also serves as a reminder of the extraordinary contributions our alumni and scholars from East Asia and beyond have made to this institution and to the world.

Stop by the Areeda Hall Entrance to the Library to see this exhibit, which will be on display through the end of October!

On September 25, 2017, EALS will host the F.Y. Chang HLS Graduation Centennial Colloquium from 9am to 3pm in Milstein A and B. The colloquium will feature panel discussions on China’s past, present, and future. RSVPs are required and should be sent to masmith@law.harvard.edu.
