Update on “Pingpong Diplomacy”

Yesterday NPR reported the death of one of the table tennis players involved in the famous international ping pong exchange in 1972 between the United States and China: http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2013/02/10/171628480/chinese-pingpong-diplomacy-player-dies. Zhuang Zedong participated in the matches held in Cole Field House and covered in one of our previous blog posts: http://www.lib.umd.edu/blogs/univarch_exhibits/?p=652. Truly a memorable and historic evening for the University of Maryland.
