Born in Zhejiang Province, Chen was best known as Chiang Kai-shek’s confidential assistant, in which position he phrased the policies of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) and the Nationalist government. In the spring of 1926, Chen joined the newly established Nationalist government in Nanjing under the leadership of Chiang Kai-shek. Henceforth, he became Chiang’s personal assistant, mainly responsible for drafting state papers and speeches for the Generalissimo. In 1930 Chen was appointed vice minister of education; in 1934 he served in Chiang’s field headquarters in Nanchang, and then in 1935 he became director of the second department of the Generalissimo’s attendance office, where he served as Chiang’s confidential assistant for over a decade.
