Hide Profile

Jiang Kangu (July 18, 1883-December 7, 1954) was a politician and activist in the Republic of China. He was the founder of the Socialist Party of China [i.e. Zhongguo she hui dang], the first anarchist-socialist party in China, which existed from 1911 to 1913. He then moved to the United States and became a teacher at the University of California, Berkeley, where he presented a collection of 10,000 Chinese books to the University (C.V. Starr East Asian Library). He returned to China in 1920 and served as Canada's first sinologist between 1930 and 1933, when McGill University appointed him as the Professor of Chinese Studies. After the establishment of the People's Republic of China in 1949, he remained imprisoned in Shanghai until his death on December 7, 1954.
