In 1872 thirty young Chinese boys landed in San Francisco to begin a ten-year period of education in the colleges and technical institutions of the United States. These students and the others who followed them returned to their homeland as the first Chinese to receive an extensive education in Western technology and ideas. China's First Hundred, as they were called, built China's first railroads, developed China's mines, constructed a nationwide system of telegraph lines, became naval officers in ann attempt to modernize China's navy, and took a prominent part in the events leading to the Revolution of 1911.
