Less well known is that China also attempted to absorb Korea\u0027s maritime customs service. The recently-discovered correspondence of the first customs commissioner in Pusan, William Nelson Lovatt - who was fired by China - reveals this unknown aspect of Chinese imperialism in the late 19th century, involving conspiracies of silence, whistle-blowing, and blackmail.\u003cbr /\u003e\r\n\u003cbr /\u003e\r\nWayne Patterson \u002768 has served as a member of the History Department faculty of St. Norbert College since 1977, and specializes in the history of East Asia.
