After his baccalaureate, Jean Augustin Bussière joined the Brest Eìcole de Meìdecine de la Marine in 1890, then the Bordeaux Ecole de Meìdecine de la Marine et des Colonies. He goes to Cherbourg in 1895 and soon after to Senegal where plague, cholera and other tropical diseases were rife. He then works in French India, Karical, Mahé and Pondicherry, where he manages the Medicine School and meets his wife, she is daughter of Lyon traders. In 1902 he reinforced the vaccination team at the Institut Pasteur in Saigon (Tonkin, Northern Vietnam) before being appointed in Persia. He then travels back to France and becomes deputy to the Director of the Colonial Health Service.
Admirer of Yersins medical discoveries he chooses to go to Tianjin in China, 41 years old, he is then unaware he will be in China for the next 41 years. He becomes the medical advisor of the Chinese presidency and shares with Dr. Watt Wing the last days of Yuan Shikai in 1916. He then is doctor to presidents Li Yuanhong (1916-1917), Feng Guozhang (1917-1918), Xu Shichang (1918-1922) or Cao Kun (1923-1924). He becomes a major figure of the French presence in China and is appointed Alliance Française director and French Red Cross Beijing committee chairman. On his country estate northwest of Beijing, he grows a garden and looks after the needy in the countryside using the wealthier city citizens’ funds. During WWII, defying danger he helped the Chinese fight against the Japanese invaders and becomes a hero for China and is so described by President Xi-Jinping during his visit in France in 2014. In 1954, back in France, he returned to his native village by the Sioule river and passes away the age of 86.The "Emperors Doctor’s” coinage.Jean-Augustin Bussière (1872-1958) was the son of a schoolteacher and grew up in the French countryside. The eldest of seven children, he began his career as a military doctor in 1890. Upon leaving the Navy, he joined the Colonial School of Health (École de Santé de la Marine et des Colonies).
From 1895 to 1912 he participated in the fight against smallpox, plague and cholera in Senegal, Pondicherry, Saigon, Shiraz and Bushehrl. He greatly admired Louis Pasteur. He received many awards and was appointed deputy director of the Colonial Troops Health Service in Paris. From 1909 to 1912 he was the family doctor for French President Maréchal Joffre. In 1913 he went to China as Chief Medical Officer of the 16th Colonial Infantry Regiment in Tientsin. He was a professor at the School of Naval Medicine. A year later he is appointed doctor for the French Legation in Beijing and the chief doctor of the Saint-Michel French hospital. As a surgeon he treated everyone - from the poorest citizens to dignitaries of the Imperial Court, foreign citizens and New China officials. Victor Ségalen, when he left to study sculptures in Western China, selected him to be medical adviser to President Yuan Shikai and his son Yuan Keding. With his Chinese counterpart, Dr. Watt Wing Tsas, he supported the Chinese leader and his claim to be Emperor. For his support he received exceptional medals and Essais from Yuan Shikai himself.After serving Yuan Shikai, he was named the “Emperors Doctor” by the press.
Until 1924 he was the medical adviser to presidents Li Yuanhong, Feng Guozhang, Xu Shichang, and Cao Kun. He was named Dean of Aurora University in Shanghai, with Li Shizheng he co-founded the Sino-French University and its medical branch and was named President of the University of Peking. In 1925 he was called to the bedside of Sun Yatsen, founder of the Chinese Republic, and was present at his death. He was President of the Alliance Française and the French Red Cross in Beijing.When he was not in the operating room, this eclectic humanist met in his “literary salon”, which was close to the Forbidden City, with Chinese writers, travelers, diplomats, scholars and artists such as Xi Baishi, Mei Lanfan at Hutong Ta Tien Shui Tsing, Saint John Perse, Teilhard de Chardin, Alexandra David-Neel, Swen Hedin, Claude Farrère and Paul Pelliot. In 1937 he retired.
He opposed the cruelty the Chinese imposed on the Japanese during the occupation. After his children and grandchildren left, he became friends with a young Chinese artist. Threatened by the new regime, having spent 41 years in Beijing, in 1954 Jean-Augustin Bussière returned to France accompanied by his young wife Wu Sidan. He retired not far from the village where he grew up, Châteauneuf- les-Bains. He died four years later in 1958 at age 85.In 2014, on the 50th Anniversary of French-Chinese relations, he was remembered for his heroic services during WWII when he carried bandages and medicines by bike from Saint-Michel Hospital through the Japanese lines to his dispensary located 40 km in the hills of Xishan to treat wounded Chinese and the rearguard. These unique coins and proof strikes were gifts from Chinese Presidents in gratitude for his service to the nation. Jean-Louis Bussière, fils de Jean-Augustin Bussière.
