Lehigh University Chinese Bridge Project - Lehigh Alumni, Huang Zhongliang In 1872, 15-year old Huang Zhongliang was among twenty-nine students, specially chosen by the Qing government as the first group of Chinese students ever to go abroad for studies. Mr. Huang spent 10 years in America, first learning the language and culture of America and then studying engineering at Lehigh in the Department of Mining.

Huang’s education was abruptly curtailed in 1882 by political events and he was forced to return to China without completing his degree. Nevertheless, he had a successful engineering career in China, first at the Bureau of Mechanics in Tianjing, and later at many of the newly emerging modern Chinese corporations. Mr. Huang was the chief secretary of the largest mining company in China, and later became the chief director of several major railroad construction projects. He was most remembered for his contribution to the design and construction of the Guangzhou-Hankou Line, a 685-mile long railroad that still is considered one of the more remarkable achievements in railroad construction. It took 36 years to build this line and it remains the main artery that carries millions of passengers and commodities between northern and southern China.

Mr. Huang retired at the age of 60, and remained active in later life. He held the presidency of the Cantonese Alumni Association based in Tianjin province. Mr. Huang gained much from being educated in both the East and West: He was a man, rooted in the traditional Chinese culture, but was known as someone always open to fresh ideas. He died at the age of 72, leaving behind a fascinating diary of his life in America, and a tremendous technical and spiritual heritage to generations afterwards. (^TOP)

Lehigh University Chinese Bridge Project - Lehigh Alumni, Tsai Hsiu Ng Tsai Hsiu Ng was one of the most successful entrepreneurs of the Chinese textile industry in the early 20th century. In 1916, Tsai was sent to Lehigh University and majored in mining. He returned to China soon after receiving his undergraduate degree in 1919. In 1921, Tsai became general manager of the Shanghai Meiya Textile Plant, started by his father-in-law, Mo Shang Qing.

Soon after Tsai became involved in management and development at Meiya, the company became a great success. Influenced by the scientific management theories of Frederick Winslow Taylor, which were then becoming quite popular in America, Tsai quickly revamped the entire management structure of the company. He implemented the concepts of division of labor, economies of scale and teamwork. Employees of Meiya became known as ‘worker aristocrats’. Under Tsai’s leadership, Meiya paid the most generous wages and in addition to dormitories, cafeterias, clinics and libraries, the company provided its employees with a night school and even recreational programs. These management innovations were almost unheard of in China at that time and were met with great success. In just 10 years, Meiya went from being a company with one small plant with twelve looms to a conglomerate of 12 plants with over 1300 looms, thus becoming one of the largest textile companies in Shanghai.

Tsai Hsiu Ng was also a leading member of the silk industry helping to found in 1934 the Shanghai Silk Weaving Employees Association.

At the end of the Sino-Japanese war, Tsai left Shanghai for Hong Kong, but remained the de facto leader of the firm. Although Meiya opened branches in New York, Bangkok and Thailand, Tsai gradually moved the corporation's asset to Hong Kong, where he stayed until his death in 1977. (^TOP)
