In Memoriam: Ezra Vogel

It is with a very heavy heart and deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved board member, Dr. Ezra Vogel on December 20, 2020. Dr. Vogel was known and respected as the country's leading expert on East Asia. His curiosity was endless, and his energy and discipline unmeasured. As a deep and measured thinker, Dr. Vogel was a true scholar. However, more importantly, he was a warm and deeply generous man who saw the good in every person and in every nation.


We offer our deepest condolences to his family, and to all his friends, students and colleagues in East Asia and around the globe. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them at this very difficult and painful time.
