149. Congratulation from CALA
The following congratulation letter sent by CALA (Chinese American Librarians Association). CALA is an very important academic organization, therefore, I quote the letter for you in the following:
Dear CALA Members and Friends,
Dr. Dave Wang's paper "Benjamin Franklin and China" has been published on the official website of the Benjamin Franklin Tercentenary Commission The Benjamin Franklin Tercentenary Commission was established by an Act of Congress in 2002 to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Benjamin Franklin's birth in 2006. George W. Bush, the President of the United States, serves as Honorary Chairman and made six appointments to the Commission. Leaders of Congress appointed another eight of the fifteen members, whose numbers are completed by the Librarian of Congress, serving ex officio. Dr. Rosalind Remer serves as Executive Director of the Federal Commission,which operates
with the assistance of the Benjamin Franklin Tercentenary.
Congratulations to Dr. Dave Wang! And thanks for his efforts to bridge the
Chinese and the American cultures.
