Biography   Yeh-Jau James Liu


James Yeh-Jau (Jimmy) Liu, known as the "Artist Laureate" of Tiburon, California, was born in Hunan Province in China in 1910.  As a college student he played basketball at the National Art Institute.  He later rose to the rank of Colonel in the Chinese Army during World War II.  When the Japanese invaded his native Hunan, he fled on horseback ahead of the invaders, and led a scorched earth campaign.  After the war he was recruited by Chiang Kai-shek to join four Generals in a tour of Europe, and the United States to help determine the best way to rebuild China after the war.  He became a government official in Hunan province.  In 1949 he was forced to flee to Taiwan when the Communists took over.
