Tenney made significant contributions in bridging the East and West in the late 19th and early 20- centuries. His idealistic devotion and practical efforts deeply impacted Chinese higher education a century ago. Regrettably, for more than half a century, his name was forgotten due to severed connections between the United States and China. Who is Tenney? What did he do in China long time ago that may inspire people today? The course will lead a discovery of Tenney's life in China.
