Two scholars working on Lin Yutang

April 16, 2009

Yesterday, I received a very kind email from John Williams, Assistant Professor of English and American Studies at Yale University, who is about to publish an article on Lin Yutang (one of the inventors of a Chinese typewriter model). I have also learned that Professor Jing Tsu (also at Yale) will have a chapter on Lin Yutang in her forthcoming book. I’m quite excited to find out what both of these scholars have discovered about Lin and his MingKwai model.
