Pearl Buck

a.k.a. Pearl (nee) Sydenstricker Buck, Pearl S. Buck

Author Code: APSB

Born: Jun. 26, 1892 - Hillsboro, West Virgina, USA

Died: Mar. 6, 1973 - Danby, Vermont, USA

The daughter of missionaries, Pearl spent the first 18 years of her life in China. She was then educated at the Randolph-Macon Woman's College in Virginia, graduating Phi Beta Kappa in 1914. She became a Presbyterian missionary and returned to China where she met and married John Lossing Buck, an agricultural economist, in 1917. From 1920 to 1933, they resided in Nanking and both taught at the Nanjing University. Pearl returned to the U.S. briefly in 1924 to obtain her Master's degree from Cornell University. During the turmoil in China during the 1920's, the family was uprooted and spent some time in Shanghai and Japan before returning to Nanking. However, the instability was such that they left China for good in 1934. In 1931, Buck published The Good Earth, the first of a trilogy (The House of Earth) which was hugely successful and resulted in two years on the best-seller list, the Pulitzer Prize in 1932 and the subsequent Academy Award winning film in 1937 starring Paul Muni and Luise Rainer. In 1938, Buck was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. She was a devoted humanitarian and founded Welcome House, Inc in 1949, the international adoption agency, and the Pearl S. Buck Foundation in 1964. During the Chinese Cultural Revolution, Buck was denounced as an "American Cultural Imperialist" and was prevented, much to her dismay, from visiting China with President Nixon in 1972. Her many works include East Wind, West Wind (1930), Sons (1933), A House Divided (1935), The Patriot (1939), Dragon Seed (1942), China Flight (1943), Pavilion of Women (1946), God's Men (1951), Letter From Peking (1957), Death in the Castle (1965), The Kennedy Women (1970), China As I See It (1970) and All Under Heaven (1973).
