Gauss at the Great Wall, Spring Festival, 1982

My husband, Gauss Rescigno, gets the credit for beginning our Chinese adventure. Back in 1979, he assisted the first visiting scholars from the People’s Republic who came to the University of Minnesota.

On January 31, 2014 the university’s China Center—where Gauss served as interim administrator in 1983—is sponsoring a Chinese New Year celebration that also commemorates the 100th anniversary of the first Chinese students to attend the U of M. We will be there and hope to see some familiar and new faces.
