him mark lai, 1925-2009

We've lost two significant Asian American scholars in under a week. With the passing of Professor Takaki, I just learned that Chinese American historian Him Mark Lai died last week. The internationally noted scholar and writer was the author of ten books, more than 100 essays, and referred to by many as the "Dean of Chinese American History." He was 83: Him Mark Lai: Dean of Chinese American History, Passes (1925-2009). Learn more about Him Mark Lai's work here: Him Mark Lai Digital Archive Project.
