This brief essay discusses the circumstances surrounding Sun Yat-sen’s visit to Kyushu University in 1913. Through the lens of a work of calligraphy he produced to commemorate that occasion, this piece explores not only Sun Yat-sen’s activities, thoughts, and emotions during this visit but also the message he may have intended to convey to the numerous people who have visited the University’s Central Library on Hakozaki Campus, where the framed plaque still hangs today.
