Li then returned to Liaoning and served as General Manager of Liaoning Provincial Bank, before following the Republic of China to Taiwan where he continued his civil services there after 1949. Li had a great fondness for Chinese classical literature, poems and calligraphy. He began to collect Yu Youren calligraphic works and directly acquired them from the artist.
