What I need:
*The typical English spelling in the 1940s for the name that sounds like Koo Jee Kang when said by various Americans.
What I know:
* I am informed that in modern pinyin this name would likely be Ku Je Kang.
Previous searches: Due to the nature of this request, Google isn't much help. I've enquired of a friend who has studied Chinese and visited China; I've also reviewed the pinyin article on Wikipedia.
