Rhee's ancestry stems from Koran royalty, but throughout his life he has been both a revolutionary and a missionary. First he campaigned against the Korean monarchy. For that effort he spent seven years in jail It was in that period that he became a Christian. Later, he came to the United States where in 1910 he won a doctor of philosophy degree m theology at Princeton. In that same year the Japanese took over Korea and Rhee returned to campaign both as a missionary and to agitate against foreign influence. It wasn't long before he had to leave Korea again. In 1919, a group of anti-Japanese Koreans named him president of what they called the Korean provisional government. There followed many years of fruitless effort to get himself and h:s government recognized. In fact, it wasn't until 1948 that South Korea held its first elections and Rhee finally won his recognition. The tough old president can never forget his hard days as a revolutionary or the tortures he underwent in jail, and it doesn't make him easier on his political foes now. * At one point in jail, his torturers mashed his fingers and drove lighted sticks beneath his fingernails.
