And was it here! Oh! was it here,
His cry first charm’d a mother’s ear?
Here, where his first young wizard thought
To charm the wond’ring world was given…

Leigh Cliffe, ‘The Pilgrim of Avon’ (1836)

Every year, tens of thousands flock to Henley Street, Stratford-upon-Avon to visit Shakespeare’s Birthplace House. What looks to the uninitiated like an ordinary residence restored in the 19th century is a shrine to admirers of the Bard all over the world. When the campus site of this University was still known as Ma Liu Shui, there used to be a white station-house for diesel locomotives at the entrance to Chung Chi College which later became the Chinese University. Today the University MTR is a modern depot of trains, buses and taxis. Much has changed at the doorstep of CUHK.

Starting from this issue, we will juxtapose old photos of the old campus with new ones of the same parts of the campus. Readers are welcome to contribute old photos in their possession. Let’s see who can elicit the most ‘Oh! was it here’!

The scientific community is still rejoicing over the finding of that elusive God particle. But we are already peeping ahead to hear what Prof. Chu Ming-chung has to say on life after the Higgs.

To continue our series of excellent academic programmes, we are bringing you the social work programme, which puts theory and concepts into practice. Its director, Prof. Joyce Ma, tells us how the profession chose her and what it is like to serve as a social worker and run a successful programme.
