胡适先生无疑是深刻地影响了中国现代化历史进程的人物之一。他参与领导发起的新文化运动揭开了中国现代语言文学变革的序幕,并孕育了此后一个世纪波诡云谲的革命、改革浪潮。他的哲学思想、治学态度、以及为人处事完美阐释了一个思想家、学者、君子的形象,高山仰止,堪称后世楷模。康奈尔大学是胡适到美国学习的第一站。他在这里完成了本科学业及人生观世界观的转变,也在这里开始参与新文化运动,并称这里为第二故乡。我们,一群康奈尔大学校友以及胡先生的仰慕者,希望在康奈尔校园中的碧碧湖边,也是胡适先生最喜爱地方,建一条纪念先生的长椅。2019正逢五四运动100周年,我们恳请爱戴胡适先生的朋友们慷慨解囊,与我们一起在今年实现这个愿望。衷心感谢大家!(点此阅读更多关于胡适与康奈尔大学)

Hu Shih is one of the most important thinkers to influence 20th-century China.  He continues to gain recognition and admiration in the younger generations.  He studied in the U.S. in the early years of the 20th century, first at Cornell and later at Columbia.  That experience transformed Hu Shih from a classically educated Chinese scholar into a renowned leader toward openness and modernity in education, social reform and public affairs.

Hu Shih loved the Cornell University campus and considered it his second hometown.  To honor his memory a group of Cornell alumni and Hu Shih admirers are working to build a memorial bench on the campus along the shore of Beebe Lake, Hu Shih's favorite.  Your generous donation will bring the project to its fruition.  Thank you!

选址 Location

胡适纪念长椅将安放在康奈尔校园中美丽宁静的碧碧湖边。我们相信碧碧这个名字,也是先生所起。

The memorial bench will be placed along the shore of Beebe Lake, a scene beloved by Hu Shih.

效果图 Rendering 

长椅的设计将由我们与康奈尔园林设计师协商完成。

The final design of the bench will be completed jointly by us and the landscape designers at Cornell.

可互动标牌 Plaque

长椅后的金属标牌是一个未决选项。标牌的左边设计为一个拼图,它的圆心与圆环可以自由转动,对准后形成胡适先生的名言。

The metal plaque behind the bench is an option to be determined.
