James R. Fox, Jr. was born on March 16, 1919 in Dalhart, Texas. In order to support the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression in China in November, 1942, he volunteered to fly for Pan American Airways, then a joint Sino-US airline, transporting the anti-Japanese supplies to China through the dangerous Hump Route. On March 11, 1943, Fox and his two Chinese co-pilots were killed on such a mission when the Douglas C-53 cargo they were flying crashed.
In 2002, the Information Office of the State Council of the Peoples Republic of China especially made the bronze bust in his memory.
