One of those questions one should know but doesn't. The difference with the
Americans is that the British missionaries were a small group, not well off
and without a great deal of support at home. They did not establish the
schools and hospitals that their American counterparts did and which
provided the training and funding needed to go abroad to study. I wonder
what Chang studied at Edinburgh - Yun Po-sun, in the 1920s, read archeology
- did Chang?

Dear members,

I am not an expert on this topic but I believe it had to do with the
missionaries from America who helped sponsor their trips. I am sure Wayne
Patterson and Donald Clark would know more

I don't have the answer to that question Mr. Hoffmann but I am curious as to
why Koreans were able to travel to the United States and study at a much
earlier date than apparently they were to study in England.


Just curious

Dear All:

A quick question: anyone knows who the first Korean student in Britain
was? That wasn't police chief Chang T'aek-sang (from 1911), no?
