The Passing of Mary G. Mazur (1931-2022)

It is with sadness that I report the passing of Mary G. Mazur, a historian of China, whose work on the historian Wu Han was an original and valuable contribution to modern Chinese history. Mary passed away quietly at her home in Longbranch, Washington, surrounded by her family. Her husband, Robert [Bob] Mazur, (who predeceased her) was a distinguished chemist and she moved to Whiskey Beach in 1997 after his retirement.  She leaves two sons, Steven and Daniel and a daughter, Amy.
