"The Biographical Account of Bai Longshan Ren: Wang Yiting" is the most comprehensive biography of Mr. Wang Yiting to date, presented in a hardcover edition with numerous illustrations, making it exceptionally thorough. Wang Yiting (1867—1938), also known as Bai Longshan Ren, hailed from Wuxing, Zhejiang (now Huzhou). At the age of 13, he became an apprentice at the Shenyu Bank in Shanghai and pursued foreign language studies in his spare time at the Guang Fang Yan Hall.

In the 13th year of the Guangxu reign (1887), he started working on the "Tian Yu" sandboat engaged in maritime trade. He eventually rose to the position of manager for the vessel. In the 33rd year of the Guangxu reign (1907), he was appointed as a buyer for the Japanese Nichi-Sei Steamship Company in Shanghai, concurrently holding a similar position with the Osaka Shosen Kaisha Company.

During the periods of the Xinhai Revolution and the "Second Revolution," he supported and funded the revolutionary cause. He successively held positions such as Minister of Agriculture, Industry, and Commerce of the Shanghai Military Government, director of the China Electric Corporation, director of the Bank of China Commercial Savings, director of the Dada Inland Navigation Company, and chairman of the Huzhou Electric Light Company.

From the 1st to the 3rd year of the Xuantong reign (1909—1911), he served as the director of the Shanghai Chamber of Commerce and Industry for three consecutive terms. In the 1st year of the Republic of China (1912), he was elected as an associate director of the Shanghai General Chamber of Commerce. He was elected twice as a director of the chamber during the 5th and 7th years of the Republic of China.

Later, he became the chairman of the Central Relief Preparation Fund. Wang Yiting was a devout Buddhist, holding various positions including executive committee member and executive chairman of the Chinese Buddhist Association, chairman of the Buddhist Publication Society, and chief of the World Buddhist Laity Association.

In his later years, he devoted himself to painting and various charitable endeavors. He co-founded the Chinese and Foreign Aid Society, orphanages, disability centers, the Chinese Relief Fund for Women and Children, Tongren Fuyuan Tang, and Pushan Shanzhuang. After the August 13th Incident, he initiated the establishment of a refugee relief organization and the creation of refugee shelters."
