Helen Foster Snow: A Little-Known Utah Woman Who Changed China
WHEN Thursday | 27 Jan, 12:00 PM
WHERE 238 HRCB
Helen Foster Snow was a remarkable woman born in 1907 in Cedar City, Utah, who lived in China during the 1930s. Helen was a talented journalist, an influential author, a lifelong humanitarian, and a bridge-builder between the United States and China. As a Utah native, her pioneer heritage had a substantial impact on her later major initiatives, among them the Industrial Cooperative (also known as Gung-Ho or INDUSCO), which saved lives and livelihoods in China, India, and other countries in Asia and around the world. This led to her two nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize. She should be recognized for the Utah values of empathy, cooperation, integrity, and industry that she displayed in her work as a bridge-builder across cultures, ideologies, and borders.
