Author talk:Yun Min Chin

Latest comment: 3 years ago by Stevenliuyi in topic Sources



Looking through the above paper (moved to Author talk:Hsien-San Tseng#Sources) more carefully, I found that actually multiple other names mentioned in the paper (Fang Chao-ying, Wu Kuang-tsing, Chiu Kai-ming, Wong Chang-ping, Wang Chung-min) are all contributors to the book, but what interested me most is the name Chin Yun-min. Could that be Y. M. Chin?

At first I'm not fully convinced, because Chin Yun-min only went to U.S. in late 1940s to obtain an MS degree from Columbia University. Before that, he was the library director at the Fukien Christian University in China. But then, I found Chin Yun-min's name in a Chinese biographical dictionary, which states that he was the author of "Biography of Ch'ên Shou-ch'i", published by the Library of Congress. Undoubtedly, Eminent Chinese of the Ch'ing Period/Ch'ên Shou-ch'i is the biography mentioned in the dictionary, which confirmed that Chin Yun-min and Y. M. Chin are indeed the same person. --Stevenliuyi (talk) 21:50, 22 May 2021 (UTC)Reply
