E.K. Kim of Korea authors history of the Anderson Korean Fellowship
Physician and scientist Eung Kweon Kim (“E.K.”) has written a history of the Earl Wills Anderson Korean Fellowship, “The Andersons, Emory and Yonsei University.”
In February 2013, Kim traveled to Atlanta and presented several signed copies of his book to the Anderson family and to the Eye Center. The family of Paul Anderson Sr. (’38C; ’40L) gathered at Emory Eye Center in February 2013 to meet with E.K., the first recipient of the Anderson Fellowship in 1990.
Anderson established the fellowship in 1987 to honor his father, physician Earl Wills Anderson (1901C), a medical missionary who founded one of Korea’s first ophthalmology departments — the department at Severance Hospital and the medical school now affiliated with Yonsei University in Seoul. Approximately every two years, the endowment supports a Yonsei fellow to study for a year at the Eye Center. To date, there have been 10 Anderson Fellows.
