The following was written about General Whang in "The LIberandos:"

A tragic figure during the initial days at Fayid was Chinese General P.H. Whang, who had been on hand since HALPRO's inception as Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek’s personal liaison.  9   In all of the conferences presided over by the RAF, which addressed HALPRO's operational role in the Middle East, Whang was never invited. Embittered by this rejection, he requested to be returned to China. George Whitlock and Co-Pilot John Medford were detached to fly him to India and on to his homeland.

9 Gen. Whang survived the war and went on to become an export broker in Hong Kong.

According to Richard MIller, Whitlock and Medford returned on June 20th from their trip to India.


The website is NOT our site nor is it our endowment fund.

At the 2017 reunion, the board approved the donation of our archives to the Briscoe Center for American History, located on the University of Texas - Austin campus.

Also, the board approved a $5,000 donation to add to Ed Clendenin's $20,000 donation in the memory of his father. Together, these funds begin an endowment for the preservation of the 376 archives.
