This Month in NCUSCR History

In June, 1973, the National Committee’s second board of directors delegation went to China, the first having taken place in November-December, 1972. The highlight of the three-week visit was a meeting with Premier Zhou Enlai. You may notice a familiar face at the right end of the back row: Jan Berris, now NCUSCR’s vice president; this was her first of what has been about 160 trips to China. Also on that trip, as co-leader, was W. Michael Blumenthal (on the premier’s right), then Committee chairman; it was a homecoming for him as he had spent his teenage years in Shanghai as a refugee from Nazi Germany. Six years later, then Secretary of the Treasury, he represented President Carter and presided at the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Beijing.
