Who was Kai Ho?

Sir Kai Ho Kai, CMG, JP, MRCS, born Ho Shan-kai, was a Hong Kong barrister, physician and essayist in Colonial Hong Kong. He played a key role in the relationship between the Hong Kong local community and the British colonial government. He is mostly remembered as one of the main supporters and teacher of student Dr.Sun Yat-sen, the founding father of the Republic of China. Kai Tak Airport, Hong Kong, was named after him and his son-in-law Au Tak, though he died in 1914, long before the idea of an aerodrome was first mentioned in 1925.
