Professor Emeritus of Chinese Henry Tien-k’un Kuo, who taught Chinese at the College from 1970-1994, passed away at his home in Niantic, Conn., on Aug. 9.

Professor Emeritus Charles Chu, who was instrumental in bringing Kuo to the College, said of him, “I was fortunate – I could not have found anyone better than Henry Kuo to help me build up such a fine department.”

Kuo was a dignified scholar who loved learning. For him the Chinese Department was a family and its students were his “children.”

Members of the Connecticut College community gathered to remember the dedicated professor on Sept. 6 in Harkness Chapel.

Professor Kuo was predeceased by his wife, Josephine, who worked for several years in the College’s library. He leaves two children: Gary and Debbie Yen-Feng Kuo ’82.
