Henry Ford II Professor of the Social Sciences at Harvard University
We are deeply saddened by Professor Vogel’s passing in December, but extremely grateful he was able to share a few words in this tribute to Professor Alford.
I have known Bill Alford from the time he arrived at Harvard and have kept in touch with him since. He has been an ideal colleague. He has been a great teacher to thousands of students, Chinese as well as American. He has been a leader in research and writing in the field of Chinese law. He has been a wise administrator. And he has been a wonderfully warm and considerate colleague.
