Chapter Summary

On the evening before leaving for China, Zhou Yiliang received a long letter from Professor Fu Sinian. He explained that he planned to invite Professor Chao Yuen Ren back to assume the head the Institute of History and Philology at Academia Sinica, and he was going to invite Zhou to serve as head of the History Section. Zhou already had an invitation from Yanjing University, and so he diplomatically and politely turned down this offer. Several decades later, Zhou saw the letter that Fu Sinian sent to Hu Shi; it contained a list of recommended scholars invited to Peking University, and there was the author's name on the list. Prior to summer vacation in 1947, both Peking and Qinghua universities offered Zhou's appointments at the full professor level; and the author accepted the offer from Qinghua. In early 1948 the civil war became fiercer. Qinghua University campus was liberated peacefully.
