Zhou Jianren

Zhou Jianren (Chinese: 周建人; 1888 - 1984) was a politician and biologist of the People's Republic of China. He was the younger brother of Lu Xun and Zhou Zuoren. When the office of the Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress was vacant in 1976, Zhou was one of the 20 vice chairmen who administered the position. He also served as the chairman of China Association for Promoting Democracy and the governor of Zhejiang Province. He was a member of the 10th and 11th Central Committees of the Communist Party of China.[1]

A popular article in textbook of Chinese primary schools, "My Uncle, Mr. Lu Xun", was written by Zhou Ye, daughter of Zhou Jianren.[2]
