1966. New Chinatown Central Plaza. Chinatown, Los Angeles. From the plaque on the sculpture: Dr. Sun Yat-sen, founding father of the Republic of China was born on November 17, 1866. One of the greatest figures in China's long history, he not only gave the Republic its physical being but also provided the nation with the three principles of the people as guidance in its reconstruction.
