In Memoriam

Ezra F. Vogel

It is with profound sadness that the National Committee marks the passing on December 20 of a treasured friend, renowned scholar, and one of the earliest members of the National Committee, as well as a board member and vice chair, Dr. Ezra Vogel. Dr. Vogel was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about many things, especially U.S.-China relations, U.S.-Japan relations, and Sino-Japanese relations. He was universally respected for his scholarship in those areas, and for his unwavering commitment and many contributions toward making all three of those relationships stronger and more stable. He was even more universally admired for his warmth, generosity, humor, and deep commitment to nurturing the younger generation of scholars. Read more.
