W.K.W. Endowment Fund for supporting the Chinese Collection

Columbia University Libraries/Information Services Establishes the W.K.W. Endowment Fund

The endowment, with initial principal funding of $50,000 was established by a Columbia University Visiting Scholar, Founding Councilman of Peking University Entrepreneur Club, and Adviser to the Columbia University Asia-Pacific Development Society.

The fund will support the collection by enabling the acquisition of additional biographical materials related to historical figures in Chinese studies.  Such acquisitions may include epitaphs, eulogies, genealogy materials, autobiographies, biographies, oral histories, and photographs. It will also provide resources to host related events such as a symposium, lectures, book talks, and exhibitions.
