'''Yung Wing''' ({{zh|t=容閎|s=容闳|p=Róng Hóng|j=Jung4 Wang4}}; November 17, 1828 &ndash; April 21, 1912) was the first Chinese student to graduate from a [[United States]] university ([[Yale College]] in 1854). He was involved in business transactions between China and the United States and brought students from China to study in the United States on the [[Chinese Educational Mission]]. He became a naturalized American citizen, but his status was later revoked under the [[Naturalization Act of 1870]].<ref name="Gold2012">{{cite book|last=Gold|first=Martin|title=Forbidden Citizens: Chinese Exclusion and the U.S. Congress : a Legislative History|url=https://books.google.com/books?id=wouYAP1oKDsC&pg=PA31|accessdate=10 May 2013|date=2012-07-04|publisher=The Capitol Net Inc|isbn=9781587332524|pages=31–}}</ref>
