Lu Gusun, a former English professor at Fudan University in Shanghai and the editor-in-chief of The English-Chinese Dictionary, died on Thursday afternoon at the age of 77.

He had been hospitalized since suffering a cerebral hemorrhage on July 21, according to the university.

A native of Yuyao, Zhejiang province, Lu had taught English at Fudan University ever since graduation. He retired about two years ago and had been fully devoted to editing The English-Chinese Dictionary’s third edition with students and professors from the university.

At 4,212 pages, The English-Chinese Dictionary has been widely acknowledged as the best of its kind in China, and has influenced many Chinese people growing up learning English.

A public memorial service for Lu will be held on August 1, at Shanghai Longhua Funeral Home.
