李秉枢

李秉枢,芝加哥唐人街德高望重的老侨领。李秉枢的人生经历,演绎了一位华裔移民成长于华埠社区,事业成功之后慷慨回报华埠社区的故事。

李秉枢在1950年从中国来到芝加哥,马上就在父辈们经营的“广益”食品批发公司打杂,当年他在“广益”大楼的地下室磨豆腐、种豆芽、搬货箱、为舅舅表兄们做饭。地下室磨豆腐的日子,李秉枢一磨就是十年光阴,不过他这十年光阴没有虚度,他半工半读,念完高中,后获得伊州大学(海军码头分校)金融及工商管理的学位。

毕业后,他迅速讲专业知识应用在“广益”食品批发的生意上,随后又创立了美中地区最大的东方食品进口公司“金国金洋”。

如果要写一本芝加哥唐人街历史的书,李秉枢、谭继平(已故)、林钧堂、陈锡铨等一批老侨领的名字是必然要出现的。上世纪80年代,芝加哥唐人街附近仍是铁路多、工厂多、屠宰场多,华人居住环境很恶劣,另一方面,越来越多的华人移民的到来让原有的、以“永活街”(Wentworth街)为中心的唐人街能以承受。

1984年,“华埠发展公司”(Chinese American Development Corporate)这个影响如今唐人街总体格局的公司成立了。该公司就是由谭继平、林钧堂、李秉枢、陈欢灵等一批侨界领袖发起的。在华埠发展公司的推动下,总成本超过1亿美金的“华埠广场”扩建项目开始了。扩建项目一期工程(华埠广场及北面的住宅区)在1993年竣工。这一工程彻底改变了唐人街的面貌,并使唐人街的得到进一步拓展。到过芝加哥唐人街的,一般都会记得餐馆店铺林立的华埠广场,其亭台楼阁式的建筑,以及十二生效广场,不仅让原来的垃圾填埋场旧貌换新颜,而且如今已成为唐人街的中心区域。

驾车的游客也会体验到唐人街停车费的低廉,芝加哥唐人街的两大块停车场,是由“华埠停车场公司”经营。成立于1985年的“华埠停车场公司”是非赢利组织,20多年来一直维持芝加哥市最低的停车场收费标准。“华埠停车场公司”,也是由谭继平、林钧堂、李秉枢、陈欢灵等一批侨界领袖发起成立的。这一批在唐人街成长、打拼的老侨领,深知停车便利对唐人街商家的重大意义。而停车场公司的收入,在清偿债务、扣除运营成本之后,利润全部回馈给唐人街社区,捐赠慈善服务,社区学校,以及服务华人移民的社区机构。


李秉枢本人,在事业取得成功之后,也是乐善好施,慷慨回报华人社区。美洲华裔博物馆(芝加哥)所在的大楼(238 West 23rd, Chicago, IL. 60616),也就是当年李秉枢磨豆腐、种豆芽的地方,就是由李秉枢本人无偿捐赠。这座大楼由李氏家族在1948年购买,1997年“广益”食品批发公司结束运营之后,该大楼卖给了一位梅姓商人。2002年美洲华裔博物馆基金会成立后,博物馆急需一个固定的场所,李秉枢知道这情况后,便以66万美元的价格将该大楼重新买回来,并无偿捐赠给美洲华裔博物馆基金会,让美洲华裔博物馆有了“家”。据笔者所知,此后李秉枢还为美洲华裔博物馆基金会捐赠了500万美元。
