the sup­port of the then Ger­man Con­sul Gen­eral Wilhelm Knappe who wanted to in­crease Ger­man in­flu­ence in China through ed­u­ca­tion and med­i­cal ser­vices. The hos­pi­tal also re­ceived funds from Shang­hai

(the cir­cuit in­ten­dant for for­eign af­fairs in Qing Dy­nasty), and prom­i­nent Chi­nese mer­chants in­clud­ing Ye Chengzhong, Zhu Baosan and Yu Yaqing,” Li says.

The hos­pi­tal was re­named Paulun Hos­pi­tal af­ter the Ger­man doc­tor died of dis­ease a day af­ter his 47th birth­day in 1909. In the news story re­gard­ing the change of hos­pi­tal name, The North-China Her­ald says a few for­eign res­i­dents, be­sides Ger­mans, knew of the ex­is­tence of the hos­pi­tal which had be­come well-known to the Chi­nese.

“No more fit­ting me­mo­rial could be found to the name of one who gave up so much for oth­ers than to es­tab­lish the in­sti­tute for ever as the Paulun Hos­pi­tal,” The North-China Her­ald re­ported.

Un­for­tu­nately the old build­ings of the Paulun Hos­pi­tal do not re­main to­day. It’s pos­si­ble that the huge ex­ten­sion part, de­signed in 1927 by Park Ho­tel ar­chi­tect Las­zlo Hudec, is wrapped in­side a mod­ern sur­face added dur­ing a 1980s ren­o­va­tion.

When Hudec’s other hos­pi­tal, the Coun­try Hos­pi­tal (the No.1 build­ing of to­day’s Huadong Hos­pi­tal), was un­veiled in 1926, the anony­mous donor en­dowed two wards each in mem­ory of Shang­hai’s departed phi­lan­thropists—the late Dr MeLeod and the late Dr Paulun “for wh the great­est re­spec re­port in the Chin 1926.
