In the late 1860s, Wong Chin Foo set sail for the United States to complete the Western education which he had already begun in a missionary school in China. He attended two American colleges, got his start as a lecturer as a way to fend for himself, and continued his studies. He provided several lectures on Chinese culture in a number of American cities, but returned to China without completing his studies.
