Zhendai He (1867 – 1952) was a renowned poet, a modern scholar of classic literature, expert of local chronicles, and master of traditional Chinese poetry. He was the best exemplary of the old style of poetry, so-called the Tong-Guang-Ti, a modern branch of Min (Hokkien). For generations, Mr. He’s family motto-“hard-working will always be rewarded. Envying nobody’s luck, because everyone is blessed in a unique way,” has inspired his descendants of four generations around the world. Ms. Xinyan He, a 4th generation descendant of Zhendai He, has been deeply influenced by the profound cultural essence revealed in her ancestor’s work, established the Cultural Foundation of Zhendai He USA to promote the Chinese Culture and Art.
