EAST ASIAN LANGUAGES AND CULTURES ● 原名 哥伦比亚大学汉学系 ■ Department History “I send you herewith a deposit check for $12,000 as a contribution to the fund for Chinese Learning in your university.” This letter, signed by “Dean Lung, a Chinese person”, was written to Columbia President Seth Low by the valet of University Trustee General Horace Walpole Carpentier in 1901. Dean Lung’s remarkable generosity prompted Carpentier to give additional donations totaling $200,000 in honor of his friend and employee for the endowment of Chinese studies at the University. Thus was founded what would become the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures. In 1902 the University appointed its first professor of Chinese, Friedrich Hirth, previously of the University of Munich. Hirth began with the intention of using his own books to support the study of China at Columbia, but in the same year the University received a substantial donation of books from the government of imperial China, founding the University’s Chinese book collection, which would form the basis of what is now the C.V. Starr East Asian Library. Later holders of the founding Dean Lung Professorship have included L. Carrington Goodrich, Hans Bielenstein, and its current occupant Madeleine Zelin. Dr. Ryusaku Tsunoda, by permission of Waseda U. Library Dr. Ryusaku Tsunoda, by permission of Waseda U. Library Students from Asia had been coming to study at Columbia since the late 1800s. In the early decades of the twentieth century, a number of them, including Chinese intellectual leader Hu Shih, were attracted to Columbia by the philosopher and educator John Dewey. Ryusaku Tsunoda, who first arrived on campus in 1917 as a student of Dewey, stayed on to become the founder of Japanese studies in the Department. In 1929 the University appointed Tsunoda the curator of the new Japanese library collection contributed by the Japanese Imperial Household and Baron Iwasaki of Mitsubishi. In his classes on Japanese literature and cultural history, Tsunoda inspired many of the founding generation of Asia scholars, including Columbia’s Wm. Theodore de Bary and Donald Keene. With the expansion of the Department to include Japan, in 1938 its name was changed to Department of Chinese and Japanese. The beginning of Columbia’s tradition of scholarly excellence in East Asian studies thus coincided with the earliest years of Asian studies in the United States. Well before the Second World War spurred an expanded interest in Asia, the Department established Columbia as one of the few American universities teaching Asian languages, history, literature, religion, and politics. To address the lack of English sources for undergraduate courses on East Asia, in the 1950s Wm. Theodore de Bary, together with Burton Watson and Donald Keene, launched an ambitious project to translate Asian texts. The resulting series – beginning with Sources of Japanese Tradition, Sources of Chinese Tradition, and Sources of Indian Tradition – now consists of over 150 titles produced by the University Committee on Asia and the Middle East and Columbia University Press since 1958 and is a crucial foundation for the Department’s undergraduate courses in particular. Korean studies, which began at Columbia with a book collection and language instruction during the 1930s, was formally included in 1962 in the renamed Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures. Gari Ledyard taught Korean history from 1964 to 2000, overseeing a remarkable expansion in Korean studies. In 1959 Columbia was named a national center under the new National Defense Education Act. In the more than four decades since then, the U.S. Department of Education has continuously supported East Asian studies at Columbia with substantial annual grants for faculty salaries, student fellowships, and public outreach. In 2003 a generous grant from the Luce Foundation endowed a new chair in Modern Tibetan Studies in the Department and helped to underwrite Tibetan language study here as well; Columbia has recently used its own funds to put the Tibetan language program on a fully-funded basis, and the Department is thus now one of very few East Asian departments in the country to include Tibetan studies. With new positions established over the last several years or now in process in early Japan, early Chinese history and archaeology, modern Korean literature, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean religions, Chinese and Japanese film, and with plans for future positions in Vietnamese culture and language among others, the Department is growing, and making a serious effort to shape the field of East Asian studies nationally, in important new directions.

During the 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s, undergraduate interest in Asia rose sharply, while the Department’s graduate programs have produced successive new generations of Asia scholars. With an illustrious professorial faculty now standing at twenty-six members and a nationally leading language faculty of more than twenty lecturers; with a placement rate of nearly one hundred per cent in academic jobs for its PhD graduates in the last decade or more: and with both its undergraduate and MA students going on either to further academic study or to significant non-academic positions in the East Asia field, the Department is a leading participant in the unprecedented flourishing of East Asian studies in the new century, when the study of this part of the world has become integral to undergraduate general education and part of the disciplinary mainstream of the humanities and social sciences. More than a century after the founding gift in Chinese, the Department and the University boast a faculty, library, and record of educational innovation and service to East Asian studies undreamed of in the days of the generous valet Dean Lung.

●你的美女大千金 , 是导演李安的学妹哦 !
■■贺拉斯·卡本蒂埃Horace Walpole Carpentier(1824-1918)，美国人，加利福尼亚奥克兰市和哥伦比亚大学汉学系的建立者。他和仆人丁龙的故事感动了很多中国人。 中文名：贺拉斯·卡本蒂埃 外文名：Horace Walpole Carpentier 出生地： 纽约 出生日期：1824年7月7日 逝世日期：1918年1月31日 职业：律师 毕业院校：哥伦比亚大学 主要成就：建立奥克兰市和哥伦比亚大学汉学系 分享 人物简介 卡朋蒂埃 卡朋蒂埃，1824年7月7日生于纽约北部的一个小镇，1850年毕业于哥伦比亚大学，是名律师。1849年加州发现金矿，他加入了淘金大流中，淘得第一桶金，后来创办加州银行，成为该行总裁。他在一片处女地上兴建了一座全新的城市，取名奥克兰，自任市长。相继建造了学校、码头、防波堤、船坞等。后来，他把土地交给了中太平洋铁路公司，他拥有该公司大量股票。因为在加利福尼亚州的国民自卫队服务，他也被称为“将军”。1889年卡朋蒂埃赚足了银子就离开了加州，来着丁龙管家来到纽约，在纽约东37大街108号安家。 卡朋蒂埃和丁龙 卡氏脾气暴躁，终生未婚，但对丁龙则另眼相待，1900年丁龙已经是卡氏的一个伙伴（companion）了，而十年则只是他的“华人帮佣”（Chinses help），这其中发生了一则动人的故事。 有一次，卡朋蒂埃酒后失态把所有的仆人都打跑了，还对丁龙大发雷霆，并当场解雇了他。第二天清晨，清醒后的卡氏环顾空荡荡的房子十分懊丧。这时丁龙一如既往地端着盘子给他送来早餐。卡朋蒂埃愧疚不已，他郑重其事地向丁龙道歉，并保证要改掉自己的坏脾气。他问丁龙为何没有走？丁龙回答说：“虽然你的脾气确实很坏，但我认为你毕竟是个好人。另外，根据孔子的教诲，我也不能突然离开你。孔子说一旦跟随某个人就应该对他尽到责任，所以我没有走。”忠实的丁龙就这么一直留在卡氏身边。有感于丁龙的忠诚，有一次，卡氏问丁龙，对于他这么多年忠心耿耿的服侍，想得到什么回报。丁龙的回答出人意料：希望在美国最好的大学之一哥伦比亚大学建立汉学系，让美国人能更多了解中国和中国的文明。1901年6月，卡朋蒂埃向他的母校哥伦比亚大学校长塞斯·洛（Seth Low1850～1916）捐了10万美元，并致信：“五十多年来，我是从喝威士忌和抽烟草的帐单里一点一点省出钱来的。这笔钱随信附上。我以诚悦之心献给您筹建一座中国语言、文学、宗教和法律的系，并请您以‘丁龙汉学讲座教授’为之命名。这个捐赠是无条件的，惟一的条件是不必提及我的名字。但是我要保持今后追加赠款的权力。”同时丁龙也捐赠了自己的积蓄，他在纸条上写道：“先生，我在此寄上12000美元的支票，作为贵校汉学研究的资助--丁龙，一个中国人。”卡氏在给塞斯·洛的信上高度称赞了丁龙有人品：“虽然他是个异教徒，但却是一个正直、温和、谨慎、勇敢和友善的人。” 为了实现自己仆人的这个愿望，卡本蒂埃多次同哥伦比亚大学的两任校长斡旋，自己又陆续捐款将近50万美元，甚至捐献出了自己在纽约的住房；建成哥伦比亚大学东亚系之日，他本人也被拖累至濒临破产，只得搬回纽约上州乡村的老家度过余生。这场持续多年的捐献史无前例甚至堪称悲壮。事情还没有这样简单。即使有了富翁和杰出校友、校董的出面支持并追加补足了建系的全部花销，当年哥伦比亚大学校方还是不愿意以丁龙这样一个无名之辈来命名和设立一个系科。他们曾经想用当时清朝总理大臣李鸿章的名义（李当时刚刚访问过纽约，在纽约家喻户晓）；也想过用当时清朝驻美大使伍廷芳的名义来命名这个系；后来，慈禧太后得悉消息后，捐赠了《钦定古今图书集成》等五千多卷善本书，学校又想用中国皇家的名义来命名。令人钦佩的是，卡本蒂埃始终坚持用仆人丁龙来命名这个系科，否则他就撤资。哥伦比亚大学校长妥协了，于是，到今天为止，我们还能记着这位华工的名字。 ■■
