Linghu Pu was a high-ranking Nationalist official in Shanxi Province in North China from 1945 to 1949.
Born in 1910 into a family of Shanxi merchants, Linghu aspired to be a politician. He studied political science and law at Zhongguo University in Beijing from 1933 to 1937, where he emerged as a student leader of the Leftist movement. During the Sino-Japanese war (1937–1945), he served in the Nationalist army and on the provincial executive committee of the Chinese Nationalist party (Kuomintang) in Shanxi after the Japanese surrendered. After the Chinese Communist victory in 1949, he took up residence in Shanxi, where he died in 2000.
The papers of Linghu Pu consist of diaries, memoirs, interview transcripts, personal documents, and photographs relating to the Sino-Japanese and Chinese Civil Wars and to communist rule in China. Also included are confession papers, official files and certificates, the family genealogies of Linghu Pu and his wife, Ma Huiyuan, and oral history interviews of Linghu and Ma.
