Biography/History

In 1871, Yung Wing (容閎 Rong Hong), the first Chinese graduate of Yale University, persuaded the Chinese government to send supervised groups of young Chinese to the United States to study Western science and engineering. With the government's approval, he organized what came to be known as the Chinese Educational Mission (中國留美幼童 Zhongguo liumei you tong), which, in total, sent 120 boys to study in the United States. The boys arrived in four detachments between 1872-1875, and lived with American families in Hartford, Connecticut, and other New England towns. Due to internal and external pressures caused by a change in government in China, the mission was ended early in 1881.

Scope and Content

The Thomas La Fargue papers are made up of materials collected by Thomas La Fargue, many through Arthur G. Robinson, regarding the Chinese Educational Mission (中國留美幼童 Zhongguo liumei you tong), 1872-1881, for his book China's First Hundred (1942). And can be divided into two major subjects, source materials and La Fargue's correspondences and writings.

The source material includes original and typescript copies of letters to and from Chinese Educational Mission (中國留美幼童 Zhongguo liumei you tong) students; biographical information on the students, much written by the students or their friends and families; a collection of photographs of the students, from when they were studying in the United States and after they returned to China; and clippings, speech transcripts, and various printed materials related to the Chinese Educational Mission (中國留美幼童 Zhongguo liumei you tong).

La Fargue's writings are comprised of correspondence to and from La Fargue regarding materials for his book, La Fargue's trip to China in the summer of 1940, and the book itself. Also included are La Fargue's notecards, a typescript draft manuscript of China's First Hundred, and some miscellaneous materials.

Other Descriptive Data

Wade-Giles was the prominent Romanization system for Chinese during the period that this collection covers. Variations in the Romanization, nicknames, and accuracy of sources, lead to a wide variety in the Chinese names within La Fargue’s research. The Romanization spellings found in the “List of the Students of the Chinese Educational Mission”, pages 173-176, La Fargue, Thomas E., and State College of Washington. China's First Hundred. State College of Washington, 1942, are used for identified Chinese Educational Mission (中國留美幼童 Zhongguo liumei you tong) students. To assist in searching and identification, following each name, in parentheses, is the name in traditional Chinese and the Hanyu Pinyin Romanization. These names are taken from “Table 2.1 CEM students (by detachment)”, pages 14-17, Rhoads, Edward J. M.. Stepping Forth into the World : The Chinese Educational Mission to the United States, 1872-81, Hong Kong University Press, 2011.

The names of unidentified individuals and those who are known not to be Chinese Educational Mission students, are given in the Wade-Giles Romanization used by La Fargue, with the Chinese and Hanyu Pinyin Romanization following in parentheses, if known.

During the processing of this collection, a spreadsheet was created, by Suzanne James-Bacon, to help identify and track the variations in Romanization, forms, nicknames, and spellings of names found within La Fargue’s papers, Rhoads’ book, and other sources: such as the Chinese Educational Mission Connections 1872-1881 website, the Library of Congress Name Authority File, and Wikipedia. Because this spreadsheet may be of use to researchers, it is available in the Washington State University Research Exchange, Name variations within the Thomas La Fargue Papers.
