Ezra Vogel 
Henry Ford II Professor of the Social Sciences at Harvard University

We are deeply saddened by Professor Vogel’s passing in December, but extremely grateful he was able to share a few words in this tribute to Professor Alford. 

I have known Bill Alford from the time he arrived at Harvard and have kept in touch with him since. He has been an ideal colleague. He has been a great teacher to thousands of students, Chinese as well as American. He has been a leader in research and writing in the field of Chinese law. He has been a wise administrator. And he has been a wonderfully warm and considerate colleague.
