For today’s show, guest host Bert Zipperer spends the hour talking with historian Beatrice Loftus McKenzie about her new book, The Wongs of Beloit, which “traces the many lives of a resilient multigenerational family whose experiences parallel the complicated relationship between America and China in the twentieth century.”
Beatrice Loftus McKenzie is an emeritus professor of history and held the William and Gayle Keefer Professor of Public Humanities from 2017 to 2021 at Beloit College. She is the author of The Wongs of Beloit, Wisconsin (University of Wisconsin Press, 2022).
