Abstract: First published in the late 1940 s,Fan Wenlan’s History of Modern China was one of his major works in history. As volume one,the original book ends with the Boxer Rebellion,thus incomplete in covering the whole course of modern history. But Fan never forsook the project. On the contrary,he worked at times to revise and extend the book after 1949. He also asked for assistants to help execute the project. However,throughout his life,Fan did not get the chance to materialize his plan. Based on archival sources,Fan’s diary and interviews,this article seeks to reveal Fan’s idea and attempt in continuing the writing of his History of Modern China,in hopes of preserving a memory of Fan and others’ effort.
