Conference to honor Frederick Mote, Oct. 7-8

A conference to honor the memory of Princeton Professor Emeritus of East Asian Studies Frederick Mote is planned for Friday and Saturday, Oct. 7-8, in the Multipurpose Room of the Frist Campus Center.

Mote played a key role in advancing the study of China and East Asia at Princeton, working with others to create a rigorous Chinese language program and to expand the holdings of the Gest East Asian Library. He died Feb. 10 in Aurora, Colo., at age 82 following a long illness.

The conference will run from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday. From 9:30 to 11 a.m. Saturday, there will be an open floor for reminiscences and reflections on Mote.
