HE Haohua;ZHANG Zhihui;
The Special Class for the Gifted Young(SCGY) at the University of Science and Technology of China(USTC) is a new form of selecting and cultivating the young talents in natural sciences. Started in 1978, a special historical period, the establishment of SCGY has significant meanings. It opened up the higher education reform in China after the end of the Great Cultural Revolution(GCR), and promoted "bringing order out of chaos" in education. Currently there are only a few broad-brush descriptions about the establishing process of SCGY. Taking the 40 th anniversary of SCGY as an opportunity, we systematically study the archives, diaries and interviews in order to uncover the comprehensive process of the establishment of SCGY. Besides, we also discuss the reason why the SCGY was first established at USTC.
