In the fall of 1999, at the close of the 20th century, there were 3,726 international students on the West Lafayette campus of Purdue University. They came from 127 countries. Three of the largest groups came from Taiwan, South Korea, and Hong Kong, continuing a tradition that has stretched throughout the century. The stories behind Purdue's long-term relationship with Taiwan, Korea, and Hong-Kong have never been told before. Three Tigers and Purdue describes that history, as told in the stories of the people who lived it.
