Hua Guofeng
Birth: Feb. 16, 1921
Death: Aug. 20, 2008

Chinese Premier, Leader. A competent administrator and devoted communist , he rose steadily in the bureaucracy of the People's Republic of China. While vice-governor of Hunan province from 1958 to 1967, Hua became noted as an agricultural expert. In 1971, he was named party secretary for Hunan, and in 1973, became a member of the politburo of the Chinese Communist party. Premier Zhou-Enlai made Hua a deputy premier in 1975, at the same time designating him minister of public security, a powerful position that enabled him to control the police and auxiliary military forces. After Zhou's death in January of 1976, he became premier, a choice which was seen as a compromise acceptable to both the radical and moderate wings of the party. After the death of leader Mao Tse-tung in October of 1976, Hua was also named chairman of the Chinese Communist party, thus making him the most powerful man in China. He was credited with quickly ousting the Gang of Four, which included Mao's wife, from political power. Hua soon found himself being opposed by Deng Xiaopeng, who was emerging as a major force in the party. In the early 1980s, he was replaced by two of Deng's proteges; Zhao Ziyang as premier in 1980 and as party chairman by Hu Yaobang in 1981. In early 2002, Hua officially lost his seat on the Communist party's central committee. Before his passing, he lived in virtual retirement. (bio by: Mr. Badger Hawkeye)
