All great writers are also great readers and my grandfather was no exception. He had an extraordinary book collection on a wide variety of subject including his two favorite subjects, China and education. Moreover, he had amassed a broad collection of art and Chinese artifacts. My grandfather was not a collector, but he amassed this collection through gifts from many notable and famous people. After his death, my grandmother decided to donate all of these valuables to the USC library. My mother and I went to the opening with my grandmother, and they wrote the following article in the Chinese newspaper. Note the picture behind my mother’s right shoulder.
