AUTHOR: Ho Mang Hang (1916-2016)

Originally named Wenjie, Ho Mang Hang was born in Zhongshan, Guangdong. A graduate of Jinling University, Department of Agriculture Economics, his life was closely tied to the tumultuous history of modern China during the Republican era.

As the son-in-law of Wang Jingwei, after the end of the Second World War, Ho served two and a half years at Nanjing Tiger Bridge Prison. Immediately upon his release, he left for Hong Kong in March 1948 and later took up a position as Laboratory Superintendent in the Botany Department at Hong Kong University. Using the penname “江芙” (Jiangfu), Ho translated works of William Somerset Maugham for literary publications in Hong Kong.

After retiring in 1980, he devoted his time to gathering and studying materials and documents written by and related to Wang Jingwei. In 2010, Ho co-founded the Wang Jingwei Irrevocable Trust with his wife. He authored Cloud, Smoke, Scattered Memories, the Memoir of Ho Mang Hang as well as books on the botany of Hong Kong.
