Liang Chang
Biography: Liang Chi Chang was the youngest child of Liang Tun Yeu. He came from China in about 1908 or 1909 to live with the Welles family in Hartford, Connecticut. His father had studied in Connecticut as part of the Chinese Educational Mission years before; Liang Tun Yeu had been in school with Martin Welles, both in Hartford High School and at Yale University. He wanted Liang to have the same opportunity for an American education and home life that he had had. Liang Chi Chang did eventually return to China. The Welles family never heard from him or his family again after the Japanese invaded China before World War II.
