PROVENANCE:
From the heirloom collections of DR. Wu Guozhen (吳國楨; October 21, 1903-June 6, 1984) was a Chinese political figure and historian, government official who served as mayor of Hankow (1932-1938), mayor of Chung-king (1939-1941), political vice minister of foreign affairs (1943-1945), mayor of Shanghai (1946-1948), and governor of Taiwan (1950-1952) and the former Chairman of Taiwan Provincial Government. He resigned in 1953 and went to the United States.

K.C. Wu lived in the United States where he served as professor of Chinese history at Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia. During his time in the United States, he wrote various works, including a detailed analysis on Chinese culture in the context of mythology and early history in his book The Chinese Heritage.

The second part collections of DR. Wu Guozhen (吳國楨) presented and offered up to auctions:
ON DAY-1: From Lot-97 through Lot-124, and continued from Lot-204 through Lot-228.
ON DAY-2: from Lot-357 through Lot-386.


LOT NOTES:
Wu Peifu (吳佩孚; April 22, 1874-December 4, 1939) was a major figure in the struggles between the warlords who dominated Republican China from 1916-27.
Born in Shandong Province in eastern China, Wu initially received a traditional Chinese education. He later joined the Baoding Military Academy in Beijing and embarked on a career as a professional soldier. His talents as an officer were recognized by his superiors, and he rose quickly in the ranks.
Wu joined the New Army (renamed the Beiyang Army in 1902) created by modernizing Qing Dynasty Gen. Yuan Shikai. Following the fall of the Qing in 1911, and after Yuan s rise to President of the Republic of China and his subsequent disastrous attempt to proclaim himself emperor, political power in China quickly devolved into the hands of various regional military authorities, inaugurating the era of warlordism. In 1915 Wu became commander of the 6th Brigade.
