A brief introduction to Theodore Yao-Tsu Wu
Pages: 55 – 61
Professor Theodore Yaotsu Wu has a very distinguished career and is a true gentleman. He has lived a wonderful and very colorful life. In this article, I will give a brief introduction of Professor Wu, describing his early life in China, his graduate study and his professional development at Caltech. Many of the stories that I have adopted in this article are based on the oral history that was documented during a series of interviews conducted at Caltech in 2002.
