Dr. Frank Shulman has passed on the sad news that Harriet Mills, Professor Emerita of Chinese Language and Literature at the University of Michigan, died on March 5 in Mitchelville, Md. She was 95.
An obituary of her was published in the New York Times on March 29, 2016, placing emphasis on her experience of captivity in China between 1951 and 1955, and the question of brain-washing related to her experience.
For a summary of her career and academic contributions, see the short citation from the Regents of the University of Michigan after her retirement in 1990.
Readers who wish to post memories of Prof. Mills are encouraged to do so.
