History / Biographical Note

History

Li Huang (pinyin: Li, Huang; Wade Giles: Li, Hwang; Chinese: 李璜; courtesy name: Youchun, 幼椿; alias: Xuedunshi, 學鈍室, Baqian, 八千) was born in Chengdu, Sichuan province, 1895. He was a prominent Chinese politician, an political activist, and an educator. He studied French at the Aurora University from 1914 to 1916, where he met other thinkers such as Zuo Shunsheng and Zeng Qi. He later studied abroad at the Université de Paris in 1919. After returning to China, he became a founding member of the Chinese Youth Party (中國青年黨, CYP) which became part of the Third Force Movement. He also started the Xingshi weekly and collaborated with other prominent writers at the time to contribute to the Xin Lu journal. Most of his writings were about democracy and nationalism, but at the same time he also criticized the communists. After the Mukden Incident in 1931, he and the CYP advised Chiang Kai-shek to focus on unifying the forces in preparation for the Sino-Japanese War. From 1938 to 1948, he was a representative at the National Assembly while leading the CYP. In 1941, he was a central committee member of the KMT. Li was also a Chinese delegate at the UN meeting in 1945. In 1949, he moved to Hong Kong and remained there until 1969 when he moved to Taiwan and headed the CYP. He was re-appointed as the Senior Advisor by Chiang Kai-shek in 1984. He died in Taiwan in 1991.
