Melville Jacoby's 100th Birthday

Happy 100th Birthday to Melville Jacoby! Born on September 11, 1916, Melville Jacoby went on to become one of the most promising correspondents working in wartime China and, after the United States entered World War II, in the Philippines and the Pacific Theater. Indeed, this date also marks the 80th anniversary of the day Mel arrived at Guangzhou, China, to begin a transformative year as an exchange student at Lingnan University.
