Correspondence between Jerome Shih Yen Chung 史仁仲 (‘62) and Qian Zhongshu 錢鍾書

compiled by Yu Fong Ying (‘61)

Jerome ShihOn August 5, 2021, in an email to fellow ’62 grads, Paul Lee remembered a deceased classmate Jerome Shih Yen Chung     (Feb. 28, 1944 – Jan. 22, 2005, aged 61), extolling his excellent Chinese. In this, Paul was repeating what he contributed to the memorial file on Jerome compiled by Wong Hin Shing (’61) and Yu Fong Ying (’61) in 2012:  “I also have some copies of his correspondence with Chiang Chung-Hsu (Qian Zhongshu 1910-1998). Very erudite and impressive!  I think I can say with some confidence that no other Wah Yan alumnus has mastered Chinese literature better than Jerome. (I am being conservative. The field can actually extend much beyond Wah Yan alumni.)”  (Introduction to the Series In Memoriam -- Jerome Shih Yen Chung, Feb. 13, 2012, on WYKAAO  website).  The difference is that for the first time, the correspondence was attached to the email, as follows:

告吾師 –寫於何鎮源老師逝世兩周年 ~ 余晃英 (’61)

WYK Chapel

 

重歲已屆心尚哀
拜告吾師意蹉跎
母校精英折幾許(1)
有知當嘆共噓唏
一年親炙景遙遠(2)
十載提筆尚依依(3)
數訪多城溫顏晤
銘記敦厚苦毅殷
世事風雲轉厲色
瘟疫人禍虐齊施
鄉關日遠冬關叩
鐵塔凌雲仍繫思(4)
半途而廢驚天變
此時彼地此模樣
自檢平生唯避席
長記青春竹馬遊
八年無猜相敬樂(5)
難抵時窮各東西
此日思君倍感慨
返尋五內証初衷
神父師長深教誨
讀書明理共扶持
華仁公義名早播
巍巍聖殿五洲崇(6)

Remembering Fathers, Teachers & Classmates Who Have Passed Away

From Wong Hin-Shing (’61),

Oct 5 each year is designated as "World Teachers' Day" (United Nations - Unesco).

Fong-ying and I some time ago had created 2 files - a spreadsheet and a slideshow to remember the passing of the fathers, teachers and classmates during our years at Wah Yan Kowloon (1955-1963) and some other years afterwards.  The list is not 100% complete, but it is all that's available to us.

The following is a summary of those who passed away:

  1. Fathers (total = 32)
  2. Teachers (total = 33)
  3. Classmates (total = 32)

Pictorial History of '61 Grads

Notes from Wong Hin-Shing - "The photos in this file are mainly from my computers, from Fong-ying, and from a few classmates. Unfortunately, my computers crashed many times and I lost many photos and many other documents. There are many gaps where there are no photos at all in the file, notably, in the periods 1970-1986, 1988-1993 and 1994-1997. In that sense, the file is incomplete. It’s only “partial”, as Fong-ying aptly says."

追憶與何 Sir 最後的交往 - 余晃英 ('61)

想起九月中到多倫多見了何 Sir兩次,電郵往返由八月初至十月六日止,其間的會面與電郵通訊,使我對他為人處事有更深的了解,且讓我把這最後的交流追記下來,作為對他的懷念,也作為對他的敬禮。
