Greenwich resident and former Historical Society trustee Jeffrey Bingham Mead will lead a lecture on Sunday, Nov. 9 at The China Institute in America, New York City on the time his father spent in China as a Marine.

Just before Herbert Bingham Mead passed away on his 86th birthday in 2010, he asked his son to research and publish a book about the time he served in postwar Beijing and Tianjin with the 1st Marine Division. With pictures and stories his father left behind, Mr. Mead has been researching those chaotic, tense times.

His history blog, My Dad the U.S. China Marine, has attracted the attention and interest of other China marine descendants and others interested.

Jeffrey Bingham Mead is a native and descendant of the founders of Greenwich. He earned his B.A. in Communications from Pace University, and continued his Master’s studies in Education at Manhattanville College. In addition to serving as a former trustee of the Greenwich Historical Society, Mr. Mead is an author, educator and historian, the co-founder and president of History Education Hawaii, the official council of the National Council for History Education, a former instructor at Hawaii Tokai International College and the Honda International Center of Kapiolani Community College in Honolulu. Mr. Mead is also the president of The Pacific Learning Consortium, Inc.

His desire is to bring to life for Americans, Chinese and all others a vivid and informative narrative of the everyday lives in postwar China, why it is important and what we can learn from this unique period of world history.

The lecture will run from 2 to 4 p.m. Admission is free, but advance registration is requested at Chineselectures.org/110914. The China Institute is located at 125 East 65th Street, New York, N.Y.
