Remembering Dr. Xiaolan Bao

Dr. BaoWith the greatest sadness, the Department of History announces to our students and to her colleagues around the world ,the death of Xiaolan Bao, January 22, 2006

Professor Bao died at home after a draining and very difficult two and one-half year stuggle against a rare and very aggressive form of breast cancer. She fought valiantly to get back to her students and her research, but after a short respite in the spring of 2005, she was forced to return to chemotherapy.

In addition to her role as an important and tireless scholar of women in Chinese history, Bao Xiaolan was a wonderful friend and colleague whose memory will remain with us, and the hundreds of people around the world whose lives she touched.

The Department has established a scholarship in Xiaolan’s name. The Xiaolan Bao Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to History majors (undergraduate or graduate students) for outstanding work in the field of Asian or Asian American Women’s History. If you would like to contribute to the scholarship, please feel free to follow this link to the Xiaolan Bao Memorial Scholarhsip Donation Form:
