          An American Capitalist in a Confucian World: Warren Delano, Philanthropic Giving and the Old China Trade

          by THOMAS H. COX, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF HISTORY, SAM HOUSTON STATE UNIVERSITY

          Professor Cox's presentation will examine Chinese influences on the business and philanthropic career of Warren Delano II. The maternal grandfather of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Warren Delano was one of the most prominent American traders in China from the 1830s to the 1860s. Although trained as an individualist, profit oriented New England merchant, Delano over time learned how to function in an Asian world dominated by Confucian concepts of familial piety, family reputation, gift giving and the suppression of individual desires for the common good. This study discusses the ways in which such influences informed Delano’s evolving sense of paternalism and communal responsibility which informed his professional and personal life over a sixty year period, leaving a lasting impression on his grandson’s views towards China and Chinese culture.
