This show focuses on Chester Fritz (1892-1983), who donated over 2.25 million dollars to UND, including funds for a library and auditorium that both bear his name.

Featuring art and photography within the context of Fritz’s life stories, the exhibition provides fascinating insights into the cosmopolitan culture of early 20th century Shanghai.
