chinese-new-year-jpg-1

Monday Memories: The Chinese New Year is now two weeks old, having kicked off on Feb. 8. This year, which runs through Jan. 27, 2017, is the Year of the Monkey. People born in the Year of the Monkey are innovative, ambitious, clever, cunning, and arrogant, according to the Chinese zodiac. The dates for the Chinese New Year fluctuate, based on the phases of the moon and the path of sun. There are twelve Chinese zodiac signs, and they also change every year. People born on or after February 15 in 1942, were born in the Year of the Horse, which meant that they were hard-working and independent. In this historical file photo from the Toledo Times dated Feb. 19, 1942, Toledo University President Philip C. Nash received expert instruction on how to use chopsticks, and he seemed to get the hang of it. He was the guest at the Chinese New Year dinner which Kee Sang, a local Chinese merchant, gave for Toledo Friends of China and Toledo Chinese, in the Kin Hong Low restaurant. Mary Frances Chan of Toledo is shown at left, with President Nash, center. The little instructor on the right is Mary Lewis, 11, of Toledo, daughter of Charles Lewis, a leader among Toledo Chinese. Mr. Nash was named president of Toledo University in 1933. He had been a dean at Antioch College and executive director of the League of Nations Association. To help the university survive the Great Depression, he used President Roosevelt’s New Deal programs to construct faculty and student housing, and an 8,000-seat football stadium. Toledo University became known as the University of Toledo in 1967 when it became a state-funded university.
