Mao Tse-Tung (also known as Mao Zedong) was founder and chairman of the People's Republic of China (mainland China,which was not actually treated as China by the US until the 1970s-Taiwan, the Republic of China under Chiang Kai-Shek, was treated as the real China). Mao was responsible for the Great Leap Forward that resulted in widespread famine, killing 20-30 million people.
