Editor's note: This year sees the 100th birthday of Sol Adler, the US Treasury Department's representative to China in World War II and a translator of Chairman Mao Zedong's works. The following is a speech in commemoration of him made by Professor Chen Lin of the Beijing Foreign Studies University, at a meeting jointly held today by the China Society for People's Friendship Studies (PFS) and the university in Beijing to celebrate the occasion for Adler and two other old friends of China, Jack Service and Frank Coe.

Sol Adler was an old friend of the Chinese people and to our senior Party and government leaders, including Chairman Mao Zedong, Premier Zhou Enlai and many others. Ever since WWII, when he was working in the US embassy to China in Chongqing, he was sympathetic with the Chinese people's fight for national independence and democracy. He worked selflessly and conscientiously for and made great contributions to the cause of the Chinese people for liberation and socialist construction and for their endeavor to cement friendship between the Chinese people and peoples of the world.
