Julian Schuman Memorial Service @ China Daily Beijing, P.R.C. May 05, 1995

 

“… Julian Schuman Published 4:00 am, Wednesday, May 10 , 1995
Funeral services were held in Beijing for Julian Schuman, the last American correspondent to leave Shanghai after the takeover of the city by Mao Zedong. He died April 1 at Capital Hospital after several years in a coma resulting from a massive stroke and was interred at the Cemetery for Revolutionary Martyrs. He was 74.
Mr. Schuman was born in Boston and grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y. He studied the Chinese language at Harvard as a GI during World War II, and later, on the GI Bill, at Yale. He sailed to China in 1947 and worked for a Chinese daily newspaper, doing radio broadcasts as well for ABC out of Shanghai.
He worked for the China Weekly Review in Shanghai with publishers Bill and Sylvia Powell, returning to the United States after its closure at the height of the McCarthy era. In 1956, he and the Powells were indicted for sedition; the charge was dropped in 1961.
In 1963, Mr. Schuman returned to China. He worked for the government-run Foreign Language Press for 14 years. From 1980 until the fall of 1993, he worked for the English-language China Daily.
He is survived by three stepchildren, Jonathan Zaktin, of Beijing, and Jeremy and Tanya Zaktin, of San Francisco and Marin County, respectively…..”
