Obituary. New York Times, October 11, 1997

Fred Wang, 84, Artist and Scholar in Chinese

By Judith H. Dobrzynski
Fred Fang Yu Wang, an artist, calligrapher and expert in Chinese art who helped develop the first computer system to teach Chinese, died on Monday at New York Hospital in Manhattan.  He was 84 and lived in Manhattan.

Mr. Wang, who early in life was known as Wang Fang-yu, was born in Beijing in 1913, and educated at the Catholic University there.  He came to the United States in 1945 and earned a master's degree from Columbia University in 1946.

He taught Chinese language and literature at Yale University from 1945 to 1965, then joined the faculty of Seton Hall University, where he became chairman of the department of Asian studies and curator of the Oriental Art Collection.  He worked on the computer system while at Seton Hall in the mid-1960's, when interest in the Chinese language was just beginning to grow in the United States.  He also wrote Chinese language textbooks.

All along, Mr. Wang practiced calligraphy and painted, developing a style that was a blend of traditional Chinese calligraphy and contemporary work.  Beginning in 1976, he was invited to show his work in many solo exhibitions around the United States and in other countries, including Switzerland, Germany, China and South Korea.  His most recent exhibitions took place this year at galleries in San Francisco and New York, at the Taipei Gallery.
