Chapter Summary

Zhou Yiliang was born in Qingdao, Shandong Province on January 19, 1913. Although he was raised in Tianjin, following the tradition of keeping one's original native place as received from one's forebears, Zhou Yiliang have always used Anhui Province for this. The county that is given as his family's native place was known as Jiande in the Qing dynasty. His father Zhou Shutao was a businessman as well as a book collector. When he passed away, he was serving as vice-chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Congress. Zhou Yiliang's father regulated himself with great strictness. His father's collection of books was immense with numerous rare volumes. Zhou Yiliang was the oldest of ten brothers and sisters. As a model for the others, in later years he held to the current fashion and followed the rules of "being discreet his entire life".
