  • Wikipedia 2 Sep. 2015 (Herbert Allen Giles (pinyin: Zhì Lisi; Wade-Giles: Chai2 Li3 Ssu1) 8 December 1845-13 February 1935) was a British diplomat, sinologist, and professor of Chinese language. Giles was educated at Charterhouse School before becoming a British diplomat in China. He modified a Mandarin Chinese Romanization system earlier established by Thomas Wade, resulting in the widely known Wade-Giles Chinese romanisation system. In 1897 Herbert Giles became only the second professor of Chinese language appointed at the University of Cambridge, succeeding Thomas Wade. Lists works)
