David Lee and Anna Wu Angus International Travel Fund

The David Lee and Anna Wu Angus International Travel Fund was established to honor the memory of David Angus, an internationally renowned professor in the School of Education from 1966 until his death in 1999. Anna Angus, David’s wife, and colleagues and friends created the fund to recognize David’s distinguished career as a historian of American education. His book, The Failed Promise of the American High School (co-authored with Jeffrey Mirel), remains one of the most widely used and cited books in the field. In addition to his contribution to the study of American educational history, David was also deeply involved in research and teaching in the areas of comparative and international education. In 1996, he was named the Lingnan Scholar of American Studies at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

The award size will be based on the available distribution as determined by University policy.
