Chapter 6_ John Grant, Medical Bolshevik


It is far more important to support Chinese efforts that are
 60% efficient than western ones that are 100%.
─John Grant, "Diary of Shansi Trip," 1922


John Grant differed in many ways from his colleagues among Peking-bound PUMC entourage aboard the ^Empress of Asia^ in 1921. For one thing, Grant was returning to the land of his birth, China. For another, his temperament and viewpoints were soon to earn him the appellative "medical bolshevik," hardly a typical nickname for one of the staff of the prudent Rockfeller Foundation.[n.1]  More importantly, he had the unusual intellectual flexibility necessary for adapting medical practice and pedagogy to the overwhelming needs of China.

Grant's adult sojourn in China was to last for 17 years, 1921-1938, 14 of which he spent as Professor of Public Health at PUMC and 3 as Co-director of the Rockfeller Foundation's progressive rural China program. A leading Chinese economist years later attributed any accomplishments in social medicine during the Republican period to the leadership of this same John Grant, concluding that he was the "spirit of public health" for modern China.[n.2]

The China Progam, inaugurated formally by the Foundation in 1935, bears the stamp of John Grant almost as much as it does that of its principal author, Selska Gunn. Grant's critique of earlier Rockfeller programs contributed to the raison d'etre for the new program:

He outlined an alternative medical policy which would be directly related to the non-medical aspects of Chinese life he had so frequently mentioned: 

The development of such a medical policy is, however, so dependent upon the progress in other fields of community activity, such as industry, agriculture, education and transportation, that it should be closely coordinated with a program of national planning. Future Foundation medical policy therefore should be limited to those projects which are a part of a unified medical program which in turn should constitute one aspect of a larger plan of social reconstruction.[n.84]
