In December 1987, the Chinese Ministry of Education approved the establishment of Lingnan College under Zhongshan University in Guangzhou (Canton) on the site where the old Lingnan had been located. The ministry's decision came on the eve of the grand celebration of the centennial anniversary of Lingnan University, and it also came at the strong request of overseas and domestic Lingnan (Canton) alumni. Since then, Lingnan's loyal alumni all over the world, particularly those in Hong Kong and the United States, have contributed nearly U.S. 20 million to the institution. In addition, Lingnan College's tax-free teaching and research development fund, registered with the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government since 1997, has gone up to U.S. 1.28 million. Although the Lingnan that existed from 1888 to 1951 is long gone as an institution, its memory has continued to command so much loyalty that a careful examination of the Lingnan experience is useful for understanding the dynamics of the American and Chinese educational interaction from the late-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century.
