Since 2016, Ling has served as a visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University collecting sources for a book project, “Sword Blue: A Chiang Kai-shek’s Man.” It depicts a century-long history of China from 1910 to 2010 through the glories, sufferings and adventures of Sword Blue, a top-ranking Nationalist government official in Shanxi. Ling recently donated her father’s archives “Papers of Linghu Pu” to Hoover. The collection spans from 1910 to 2000 and includes photos, diaries, confession papers, official certifications and government papers, Linghu and Ma family genealogies, and oral history interviews. Hoover also houses the personal diaries of Chaing Kai-shek.
