My father received his graduate degree in economics from Princeton 1935. He was a Boxer Rebellion Indemnity Scholar, and while he enjoyed his studies, he seldom spoke about his years at Princeton, although he did ask me not to join an eating club or play golf. He became an interpreter, often acted in a paralegal capacity, and community social worker for Chinese immigrants, mostly in New York City’s Chinatown. My father had high, challenging standards and a kind heart.
