In 1992, four years after his retirement, Cornell University inaugurated the George McT. Kahin Center for Advanced Research on Southeast Asia, at 640 Stewart Avenue, in what was once the mansion of Ithaca’s prominent Treman family. George’s wry words on the occasion will be fondly remembered by all that attended the event. He noted that according to Parkinson’s Law the grander the building, the less serious the work done inside it. He urged all the students to make sure that, in this instance at least, Parkinson be proven wrong. ~ Benedict Anderson
