Continuing the issue of Famous Chinese Portrait series, another one stamp was issued on July 15, 1967, the 60th anniversary of the death of the martyr Chiu Ching.
Miss Chiu Ching (1875-1907) was born at Shaohsing, Chekiang province. She went to Japan to acquire a higher education and began to participate in the activity of the Revolutionary Party organized by Dr. Sun Yat-sen. After her return to China, as one of Dr. Sun's most ardent followers, she engaged in the revolutionary campaign for overthrowing the Manchu regime, when she served as the principal of Ta-Tung School in Shaohsing, Chekiang. She was successful in establishing her revolutionary headquarters, securing arms and forming the underground forces. Unfortunately, her secret activities were later discovered by the Manchu authorities and she was arrested by surprise. She was ruthlessly executed on July 15, 1907. Her sacrifice and heroic spirit when facing death won for her national adoration as the first lady martyr in the history of the Chinese Revolution.
