National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature. Young, who is about to turn 80, immigrated to the United States as a youth, and studied architecture, before turning to illustration.
In 1964, he happened to meet Professor Cheng Man-ch'ing, who was visiting the United States. After Cheng decided to stay on, Young became one of his assistants and translators, and became a taiji teacher himself in the New York area. Great River Tai Chi has hosted many visits from Ed Young over the years, and head instructors Barbara Davis and Cheryl Powers studied taiji and Chinese calligraphy with him at Naropa Institute.
