Noting that above /367 is also at at 367, with full image, possible replacement. That original edition does not have the dates of life. — billinghurst sDrewth 05:52, 19 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

S. K. ChangEdit

I've got a clue about this person, though still not enough to identify them. I find that Author:John Calvin Ferguson, another contributor to this book, has a long-time assistant named S. K. Chang, which could be the same person here. This book says the assistant's Chinese name is 張玉風 (Zhang Yu-feng), with a note saying:

The romanization “S. K. Chang” does not perfectly match “Zhang Yufeng,” but judging from the simultaneous references to Mr. Chang and Zhang Yufeng as Ferguson’s assistant, they are presumably one and the same.

The book admits that "Unfortunately, the details of Zhang's background have not yet been discovered". I also tried to use multiple resources to search the Chinese name but couldn't find any more details about him, except confirming he was indeed Ferguson's assistant. --Stevenliuyi (talk) 02:56, 23 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Volume 2 issueEdit

I noticed that the volume 2 pdf file is really problematic. Please see Index talk:Eminent Chinese Of The Ch’ing Period - Hummel - 1943 - Vol. 2.pdf for details.--Stevenliuyi (talk) 15:25, 23 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
