Background
Liao Zhongkai (1877 - 1925): Liao Zhongkai's father was one of the poor Chinese men who got packed off to America for hard labour. Nevertheless, he made good and became a businessman. Thus, on 23 April 1877, Liao Zhongkai was born in San Francisco. In 1896, Liao was deeply influenced by the reform movement in China and stopped all old Chinese learning. He enrolled in Queen's College (Hong Kong) in 1896 to adopt Western learning. In 1897, he married He Xiangning (a revolutionary personality in her own right) in Guangzhou. He met Dr Sun for the first time in Tokyo in 1903. Liao had been in Japan for further studies since 1902, whereas Dr Sun was there to give lectures. In 1905, Liao joined the Chinese Revolutionary Alliance (Tong Meng Hui) in Tokyo, and became an active member in charge of external affairs. In 1924, upon the formation of the Whampoa Military Academy, Liao Zhongkai represented the Kuomintang in administering the academy's affairs. He was assassinated by rebels in 1925 and died from 4 fatal gunshot wounds.
