The Amer­i­can jour­nal­ist known for his books and ar­ti­cles on Com­mu­nism in China and the Chi­nese Com­mu­nist rev­o­lu­tion was the first western jour­nal­ist to give a full ac­count of the his­tory of the Chi­nese Com­mu­nist Party fol­low­ing the Long March, and the first western jour­nal­ist to in­ter­view Mao Ze­dong. He is best known for his book, Red Star Over China (1937), an ac­count of the Chi­nese Com­mu­nist move­ment from its foun­da­tion un­til the late 1930s. In 1928 made it to Shang­hai, with­out know­ing he would be stay­ing in China for thir­teen years. He quickly found work with the China Weekly Re­view, edited by J.B. Pow­ell, a grad­u­ate of the Mis­souri School of Jour­nal­ism. He be­came friends with nu­mer­ous prom­i­nent Chi­nese writ­ers and in­tel­lec­tu­als, in­clud­ing Soong Ching-ling. In 1933, af­ter a hon­ey­moon in Ja­pan, Snow and his wife moved to Beip­ing, as Bei­jing was called at that time. They taught jour­nal­ism part-time and stud­ied Chi­nese at to­day’s Pek­ing Univer­sity.

一九七零年秋天,斯诺和夫人洛伊斯·惠勒·斯诺又一起来到中国,并于10 月1日在天安门城楼上和毛泽东亲切交谈,毛泽东评价:“我没有变,你也没有变”。在京期间,他和夫人重返燕园。洛伊斯后来回忆说:“我们在一个略为发灰的浅红色的亭子 (指慈济寺山门)边停了下来,眼光穿过它的拱顶,凝视阳光下碧波荡漾的一片湖面。在我们身后,拾几步石阶向上的那块稍为高起的地方,有一片蔓草丛生的空地,四周松树围绕,遮住了我们的视线……”
