[ACSians] Mr Earnest Lau

From Siri Chutikul

Earnest Lau was a teacher extraordinaire -  the best History teacher I ever had. His passion and wit instilled a love of learning in his students - the most precious gift a teacher can give a student. Many years later when I walked the tombs of Egypt, it was Mr. Lau that I was thinking of. Ancient History came alive in his classroom. He introduced us to hieroglyphics, the Philistines, the Greeks and their mythology, and more. Who could forget his discourse on Aristotle and Sophocles, Agamemnon and the Trojan War, the Iliad and the Odyssey? Or Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa? The Reischauer-Fairbank book that he assigned is still my bible on China.  It was a privilege to be in his class.  We scaled Olympian heights with him, and now we bid him peace on his last journey.
