Time Magazine called Eugene Chen, “The brains of the Chinese Revolution." Some say that “he blended Marxism, Confucianism and Communism to support his personal agenda for China.”
Eugene - who was born Eugene Barnard Acham (he later took on the name of Chen) - was able to amass a small fortune from his law practice and a cocoa plantation, which he owned in Manzanilla. But he managed to get himself into serious, financial difficulty; and in 1912, fled to what was then Peking, China to become a legal adviser to the Ministry of Communications – initially leaving his family behind.
