What I enjoyed most about my time at Stanford is . . .
The Libraries (especially the East Asia Library). I have been able to satisfy my curiosity on many subjects, and to do research that has been published.
What is your favorite place at Stanford and why?
The Cactus Garden, which is odd and lovely during the spring bloom, and the New Guinea Sculpture Garden, which is unique.
Point of Pride: Tell us briefly about an event projects, program or initiative you were involved with at Stanford that you're most proud of.
Stanford Professor Emeritus Al Dien and I started the alumni/friends newsletter, East Asia Horizons. We also have run the Silk Road evening lecture series for 20 years, with a large community audience. Also, I helped start the Center for Buddhist Studies, doing their office work gratis for the first three years.
Leave your Legacy: What piece of guidance or advice would you give to a new hire to Stanford?
Follow your curiosity. Take advantage of the many academic and artistic events that are free at Stanford.
