Gus Lee

Gus Lee is a best-selling American author. He was born August 8, 1946 in San Francisco, a place he recounts in his childhood memoir/novel China Boy (1991). He first attended West Point and then left after three years, and then obtained both his B.A. and J.D. (Law) degrees from the UC Davis. At Davis, Lee served as the Assistant Dean of Students for the Educational Opportunity Program as well as a project coordinator of the Asian American Studies program. He received his law degree in 1976, subsequently entering the Army as a judge advocate. Upon leaving the Army, Lee returned to California to practice as an attorney and legal educator.

Lee recounted his rough childhood growing up in the Panhandle district of San Francisco in his novel China Boy (1991). He then followed with Honor and Duty (1994), a military tale about West Point, and Tiger's Tail (1996) a novel about the Korean War. He has also penned a legal thriller, No Physical Evidence (2000). Lee's nonfiction work includes a memoir, Chasing Hepburn (2004) and a book on management principles, "Courage:The Backbone of Leadership".
