  1. 1 Lukas Gajdos said at 9:59 pm on February 14th, 2019:

    Please correct “Czech Founding Father” to “Czechoslovak Founding Father” – he was ethnically Slovak and co-founded Czechoslovakia, not the Czech Republic (as the article clearly states – even in its headline…).

    It should also be noted that he mostly visited Harbin, which the article covers at some length (his health issues prevented him from doing anything substantial in Shanghai).

    To finish on a positive note – a lecture on his visit should take place in Shanghai in not so distant future – keep an eye on the RAS SH website!
