Prof. W. Z. Chien used to be born on nine October, 1912 and 1982 observed the seventieth anniversary of his beginning. a few of his associates, colleagues, and previous scholars ready this distinctive quantity in honour of his amazing contribution to the sector of mechanics. the amount doesn't comprise contributions from all of his scholars and buddies and for this we ask for forgiveness. Prof. Chien's family members have lived. in Qufangquiao Village, Hongshengli, Wuxi County, Jiangsu Province for generations. Many participants of his relations were academics during this village. while he was once 14 years outdated his father died and for a time it seemed essential to terminate his schooling yet, thankfully, an uncle, Chien Mu, who later turned a really recognized historian in China, got here to his reduction and he used to be capable of proceed his reviews. In 1931 he took front tests and was once at the same time admitted to 5 prestigious chinese language universities. of those, he selected to go into Tsing-hau college in Beijing, with significant paintings in physics. He bought his baccaulaurate in 1935 and taught at center university for a time until eventually he used to be provided a Sino:'British scholarship to review in a foreign country. within the festival for this award, 3 of the recipients have been within the box of mechanics: Prof. C. C. Lin, Prof. Kuo Yung-huai, and Prof. Chien Wei-zang. All 3 arrived in Toronto in August, 1940 and entered the leave ment of utilized arithmetic of the collage of Toronto to check below Prof. J. L. Synge.
