Details

John H. Tsui was chairman of the Chinese Room Committee during its fundraising and construction phases.  Mr. Tsui, a Tsinghua College (Peiping) and University of Pittsburgh graduate, became an engineer for Westinghouse. He was a loyal advocate and often the sole financial support of the Chinese Room Committee for four decades.  A bequest from his will in 1978 began the endowment that bears his name.
