The story of a powerful Chinese family of the late 19th - early 20th centuries began from Charles Soong. He was one of the first Chinese who had an opportunity to receive education abroad and achieved success in business. Having lived in the United States for about 10 years as an emigrant from China (huaqiao) and taken up the Western mentality, Ch. Soong always remained faithful to his homeland. For this reason, he tried to ensure that his children, who studied at the best universities in the United States, would return to China. The members of the Soong family played a leading role in the economic and political history of China: his son, Soong Tse-ven, was a successful businessman and held the most important public positions; his three daughters - Ai-ling, Ching-ling, and Mei-ling - became the most influential women in China. Ch. Soong strived to unite the East and the West. His biography is of interest for studying the role of large families and clans in the political, economic, and cultural life of China during the 19th and 20th centuries.
