Title

The Qian family in 1955

Description

Allegations that Qian was a Communist effectively led to the suspension of his security clearance with the US Army, but his actual political allegiance at that time remains a mystery today. He was under house arrest for three years before leaving for Communist China in September 1955. He led a remarkable career there and became the father of the Chinese missile program. Qian’s cousin, Qian Xueju, chose to become a U.S. citizen and later a chief engineer at Boeing. Xueju’s son, Roger Y. Tsien, was an acclaimed American chemist who won the Nobel Prize in 2008.
