      魏克利:In memory of Professor Zhang Kaiyuan (1926-2021)
      • In memory of Professor Zhang Kaiyuan (1926-2021)

        I learned of Professor Zhang’s death a few hours after he passed away on May 28.Prof. Zhang helped to reinvigorate the study of the history of Christianity in China at the beginning of the period of "Reform and Openness.” I was proud to know him as a scholar, a mentor and a friend.

        Born in 1926, he graduated with a degree in history from Nanking University in 1946, and he has been an historian all his life. He was a professor and former president at Huazhong Normal University, specializing in the history of Republican China, especially the 1911 revolution. He was also President of the Research Center for the History of Chinese Colleges and Universities. Professor Zhang has written many outstanding books, in Chinese and in English, and he has taught and mentored students for over 50 years. His historical overview and profound insight will be deeply missed.

        I first learned about Professor Zhang when I got to know his former teacher, M. Searle Bates in the mid-1970s. He spoke of Prof. Zhang as his star student when he taught at Nanking University, and told me that when I went to Wuhan I should seek him out. Prof. Zhang visited the US in the 1980s, and in Princeton he met former classmates and students of Prof. Bates including my Chinese teacher, Professor Chen Ta-tuan陳大端. There is a photograph taken in 1946 in one of his books of Prof. Bates with his students including Profs. Zhang and Chen, and also Princeton University Prof. F. W. Mote. In Princeton, he also met Prof. James T.C. Liu劉子健, who was an advisor for me as I planned to go to China. I later learned that Prof. Liu had given his library of books on Song history to HuazhongNormal University.

        I was made a Zhang Kai Yuan Academic Forum Scholar in 2015, and this was the first time I had actually met the esteemed Prof. Zhang. I lectured at Huazhong Normal University and met with graduate students and colleagues of Prof. Zhang. But I also had conversations with Prof. Zhang who impressed me deeply. Although well into his eighties, he still had keen insight and a prodigious memory. He was known all over the world for his scholarship, and especially for his work on China’s Christian Colleges.

        The last time I saw him was in October, 2019, at the “International Symposium on Thirty Years’ Research on the History of Christian Colleges in China”《回顧與展望:中國教會大學史研究三十年》國際研討會. Many of Prof. Zhang’s students were there.I presented a paper on M. Searle Bates life and work after he had left China. Prof. Zhang spent an afternoon with me and his colleagues and with Bates' granddaughter in his office. We enjoyed a warm conversation as we discussed old friends and remembered old times.

        It is impossible to review the life of a great scholar in. a few short words. But he will be remembered through his students and friends, his writings and his contribution to China and the study of Christianity.

        紀念章開沅教授(1926-2021)

        在章開沅教授于5月28日去世數小時后,我得知了他的離去。改革開放初,章教授幫助重振了中國基督教史研究。我很自豪能認識他這樣一位學者、導師和朋友。

        章教授生于1926年。1946年畢業于南京金陵大學歷史系,一生從事歷史研究,是華中師范大學的教授及前校長,專門研究民國史,特別是1911年的辛亥革命。他還曾擔任中國高校歷史研究中心的主席。章教授撰寫了許多優秀的中、英文書籍,教授和指導學生逾50年。我們將深深懷念他的歷史論見和深刻的洞察力。

        我第一次聽聞到章教授,是在1970年代中。當時我已認識章教授以前的老師貝德士。他談到,章教授是他在南京金陵大學任教時的明星學生,并告訴我,如果去武漢,應該去找他。章教授20世紀80年代訪問了美國。在普林斯頓,他見到了自己以前的同班同學和貝德士教授的學生,包括我的中文老師陳大端教授。在章教授的一本書中,有一張攝于1946年的照片,是貝德士教授和他的學生們,里面有章教授和陳教授。以及普林斯頓大學牟復禮教授。在普林斯頓,他還結識了劉子健教授,劉是我計劃去中國時的一位顧問。后來我得知,劉子健教授把他的宋史圖書館贈送給了華中師范大學。

        我在2015年成為「章開沅學術講座」學者,這是我第一次真正見到尊敬的章教授。我在華中師范大學講課,與章教授的研究生和同事見面。也與章教授單獨進行了交談,他給我留下了深刻的印象。盡管已年過八旬,但他仍有敏銳的洞察力與驚人的記憶力。他因其學術研究而聞名于世,特別是對中國基督教大學的研究。

        我最后一次見到章教授是在2019年10月,在《回顧與展望:中國教會大學史研究三十年》國際研討會上。章教授的許多學生都在那里。我發表了一篇關于貝德士離開中國后的生活與工作的論文。章教授在他的辦公室里和我、他的同事及貝德士的孫女一起度過了一個下午。我們熱烈地談論了老朋友,回憶了舊時光。

        短短幾句話不能回顧這位偉大學者的一生。但人們將通過他的學生和朋友、他的著作以及他對中國和基督教研究的貢獻來記住他。
