Life of Anson Burlingame, a Celebration


On Friday, November 16, 2018, a ceremony to honor the memory of Anson Burlingame was held at the library of the city of Burlingame, the Bay Area city named after him. This is a project my friend David Chai and I have been working on for many years. It’s most gratifying to see this come to being. His contribution to the US China relations has been unique in the history of modern civilization.
