Ching-kuo Chiang
Birth: Apr. 27, 1910
Zhejiang, China
Death: Jan. 13, 1988, Taiwan

President of the Republic of China. The son of Chiang Kai-shek and his first wife Mao Fumei, Chiang was a Kuomintang (KMT) politician and leader. He held numerous posts in the government of the Republic of China (ROC), including a brief stint as mayor of Shanghai. Early in his life he was a student of Communism, living in the Soviet Union for many years and marrying a Belarussian woman. Eventually he left Communism to become a strong supporter of the KMT. After the KMT's withdrawal to Taiwan following the Chinese civil war in 1949, he was appointed as head of the secret police (the "Blue Shirts"), and he became Defense Minister in 1965. In 1969 he became Vice Premier of the ROC, and he became Premier in 1972. On May 20, 1978, he became President of the ROC, three years after his father's death, remaining in this position until his own death in 1988. Under his presidency, he gradually liberalized the authoritarian government, lifting restrictions on freedom of speech and the press. In 1987, he lifted the martial law, propelling Taiwan toward rapid and successful democratic reforms and stimulating an economic boom. He is interred alongside his wife in the Dasi Presidential Burial Place in Touliao, Taoyuan County. His remains are to be moved to Wuchih Mountain Military Cemetery after completion of the new family mausoleum there. (bio by: Chris Nelson)
