Goh Lai Hee, a Queen scholar in 1899


In April 1899 Goh Lai Hee won the Queen's Scholarship, being the third and last Chinese lad to secure this coveted honour for Singapore. Born in 1881, he was educated at Raffles Institution, and on arriving in England he entered Emmanuel College, Cambridge, where he graduated BA on the 17h June 1902 and took  his MA degree on the 15th February 1906. A brilliant chess player, even while at school, he won his ‘blue' for chess in Cambridge, and was secretary and vice-president of the Cambridge University Chess Club. For some years he was president of the Far Eastern Society, an association of Oriental students at that University. Remaining in England, he started business as a commission agent under the firm-name of Hong Seng & Co, at 54 Lower Thames Street, London, and in 1914, just before the outbreak of the War, he went out to Peking in China, in connection with that business. He has been there ever since engaged in journalistic work.

吴赉熙



吴资照,男,1881年出生,祖箱广东潮安,曾留学英国剑桥大学获得医学博士学位

吴资照先生,祖箱广东潮安.1881年生于新加坡。早岁留学英国剑桥大学,医学博士学位。毕业后,在欧洲游历。至辛亥苹命后,经西伯利亚来到北京。原拟在祖国大陆游历后,仍退回第二故乡新加坡。但是来到北京后,亲绪文物之优胜,民风之俭朴阵厚,便定居下来。


種月季,養月季,愛月季 中國現代月季奠基人―吳賚熙


1917年春,吳賚熙乘火車橫穿歐洲大陸達哈爾濱後,見到好友伍連德博士(伍連德正在哈爾濱籌建東三省防疫事務總管理處及附屬醫院)。在東北短暫的逗留期間認識了「東北王」張作霖,隨後,吳賚熙坐中東鐵路的火車抵達北平。

最初居留在北平的一個多月時間裡,吳賚熙在基督教北京青年會結識了很多從世界各地歸來的留學生,大家熱情的交流著彼此的抱負,紛紛要為民族和國家的繁盛貢獻自己的才學,於是吳賚熙也做出了自己的終生決定-定居北京。

辦報紙

二十世紀世界各國在京津地區自辦英文報紙,從各國利益出發製造言論,嚴重侵犯了中國額輿論主權,干擾了中國的內政外交,損害了中國的利益。西方回來的知識分子希望有機會面向國際社會發布真實的中國信息,中國政府也希望巧妙利用外文報紙的言論,對外報的發行渠道予以控制等手段,使得吳賚熙先生於1916年開辦的《PEKING Daily News》等京津地區的英文報紙的輿論在一定程度上能夠服務於中國的外交需要。

聚華僑

南洋華僑俱樂部

為了解決來華南洋華僑在北平的臨時居留困難,1914年,吳賚熙在遂安伯胡同29號宅院與華僑謝昌齡先生共同組建成立了馬來亞華僑俱樂部,俱樂部宗旨是為南洋華僑回國旅遊觀光者、工作者提供免費食宿,除招待華僑外,有時會舉辦聯歡會,使大家深感鄉誼之溫暖。俱樂部是僑胞回到祖國的家庭,僑胞們在俱樂部里感受到祖國的溫暖。
