Both envisioned the construction of China’s Golden Bridge Cultural Exchange Center, modeled on Ambassador Auditorium.
 

In China’s Great Hall at 10 a.m., Wednesday, Nov. 7, 1984, the world’s most populous nation’s leader, Deng Xiaoping, greeted that venerable “ambassador for world peace without portfolio,” Herbert Armstrong. After group photographs, the two sat together at the rear of the room and, as was Mr. Armstrong’s custom, Mr. Deng was presented with a piece of handcrafted crystal titled Winter Trees by the famed American artisans at Steuben.

In addition, Mr. Armstrong gifted two photo albums to the 80-year-old head of state. The first featured the Little Ambassadors of Shanghai and their recent tour of the United States, which was sponsored by the Ambassador International Cultural Foundation (aicf). The other was a detailed collection of pictures of the Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena, California, which was constructed 10 years previous, becoming a performing arts jewel and touted as the “Carnegie Hall of the West.”
