Lu Xun Memorial Hall
by Zheng Qiwu 郑启五  Translated by Bruce Lee, 彭清洪翻译
   Adapted from "Xiamen University--Strength of the Nation"

At a symposium held in the Taiwan Institute in Xiamen University, 12 scholars from Foguang University, Taiwan (including its president, Gong Pengcheng) and I had a very good exchange of views about two giants who taught in the 1920s: Lin Yutang and Lu Xun. After the symposium, we vis-ited two important memorials: the Lin Yutang memorial and the Lu Xun memorial. It was then that I realized that the two literary giants had contributed a lot to Xiamen University, to the Mainland and to Taiwan as well.

Lu Xun Memorial Two things most interested me in this hall: an essay and a love postcard. While he was in Xiamen University, Lu Xun com-pleted many famous works of literature, including the elegant essay: From Courtyard to Private Study. This essay is well known in China and was cho-sen for Chinese middle school textbooks. It is one of my favorite essays and I have read it so many times that I can recite it. Another thing that greatly interested me was a postcard Lu Xun mailed to his lover, Xu Guangping, in Guangzhou hundreds of miles away. This was the first time I saw this post-card, though I should have seen it during my previous visits. Was it the latest addition? Maybe it had been there all along but I had never noticed it?

On the postcard were two plain half-penny stamps with “sail” pictures. The stamps were issued by the post-office of the Kuo Mintang government, the then dominant Chinese government. I could not tell when it was mailed from Xiamen because the card was face up and the date was on the back of the card. To my knowledge, it should have been mailed about 1926. Lu Xun wrote on the postcard in ink with a Chinese brush. Lu Xun’s handwriting was beautiful so this postcard is not only a relic left by a famous literary giant but also a precious work of calligraphy. The sender’s address on the postcard was Xiamen University, Fujian Province.

The calligraphy on Xiamen University’s seal must be Lu Xun’s because it is almost identical with that on the postcard. I compared the two for quite a time and could find no difference.

I told the Taiwanese scholars about my discovery of the similarity be-tween the handwriting on our current Xiamen University seal and that of the 1926 Lu Xun postcard. They were very amazed and excited, and immedi-ately photographed the postcard.

鲁迅纪念室
郑启五  彭清洪翻译

与台湾佛光大学校长龚鹏程一行12 人在厦门大学台湾研究所举行座谈,谈得十分投机,事后我陪同台湾师友们参观校园里的鲁迅纪念馆、林语堂纪念室,不料漫步在这两个鼻子底下的展览中我竟有所新得:旧物旧照的闪回现身说法,拂去了多少历史缤纷的落尘!

鲁迅在厦大时著作很多,特别是那精美的《从百草园到三味书屋》,为中国百姓家喻户晓,也是我的最爱,爱之深,能背下来。纪念馆在介绍先生的《两地书》时,出现了一枚鲁迅当年从厦门大学寄给广州许广平的明信片,嘿,是新增的史料,还是自己过去走马观花的忽略?明信片贴两枚民国的“帆船”面值半分的普通邮票,销的厦门日戳时间不太清晰,总是 1926 年的吧。因为展示的是明信片的正面,故主要内容不详,但作为邮品,视野足矣!鲁迅的毛笔墨迹娟秀可人,使明信片本身不但是文人文物,而且是书法珍品,特别是那落款“福建厦门大学鲁迅寄”几个字。如今我们校徽上的“厦门大学”四个字就是取自鲁迅的手书,不知是否就是取自这枚明信片上的。我看了半天,几乎毫无二致,只是明信片上的为竖行书写罢了。

我把现场的“重大发现”告诉了台湾的同人,他们也兴致勃勃,把明信片的风采拍摄了下来。
