Ma Tuan-Lin

Mă Duānlín (simplified Chinese: 马端临; traditional Chinese: 馬端臨; Wade–Giles: Ma Tuanlin) (1245–1322) was a Chinese historical writer and encyclopaedist. In 1317 he published the comprehensive Chinese encyclopedia Wenxian Tongkao in 348 volumes.

He was born to the family of Southern Song Minister of the East Ma Tingluan, who had an extensive collection of historical documents. From 1273, Ma Duanlin started the compilation of the Wenxian Tongkao using his father's collection and advice. After the death of his father, Ma Duanlin was called to serve the Yuan Dynasty and later played an important role in reviving the educational system of China.
