Head of School (Stearns) Correspondence: Chinese Students



NOTE: Correspondence is often in reverse chronological order in folders (most recent letters first or at the front of the folder). Chinese boys and girls attended Phillips Academy and neighboring Abbot Academy from 1903 to 1930 through the personal efforts of Andover’s principal, Alfred Stearns. Study abroad generated enormous interest during this era in China, and the World Chinese Students Federation was organized in Shanghai in 1905. Twice in these years the U.S. branch of the Federation held its annual conference at Phillips Academy. This collection comprises folders of correspondence between Stearns and Chinese students and their parents before, during, and after their time at Andover. https://www.noblenet.org/chinacomestoandover/
