Carlson was the first official emissary to Chinese communists. He spent over a year in Yenan and behind-enemy-lines in Northern China beginning from 1937. Roosevelt was said to have sent this guy after reading Edgar Snow's book. The motive was not clear. Carlson had spent continuous time in China throughout Wuhan City Defence of 1938, and belonged to the "Wuhan Gang", including Stilwell. The woman in the picture was Wu Lili, i.e., the womn who led to Mao divorce with He Zizhen
