This is pretty awesome. A hundred years ago, Sun Yat-sen’s son, Sun Fo is leaving for China, 1912.

[Found under: “Local News”]

Here in Honolulu is Sun Fo, the child of Dr. Sun Yat-sen who is serving as President of the Republic of China. Just as his father was a favorite of the Chinese of this town, so too is he being treated with great affection these days. He is on his way to meet up with his father. This boy was born at Kamaole, Kula, Maui, in 1892, and he graduated from Saint Louis School the past year. He will continue his travels to China aboard the Chiyomaru. This Thursday, he visited with Governor Frear and Queen Liliuokalani.

[It seems many other sources like this one say Sun Fo was not born here in Hawaii… “Sun Yat-sen in Hawai’i: Activities and Supporters”]

(Aloha Aina, 1/6/1912, p. 4)

Eia i Honolulu nei o Sun Fo...

Ke Aloha Aina, Buke XVI, Helu 1, Aoao 4. Ianuari 6, 1912.

  1. Well this was an unexpected gem. I just finished a thrilling book that was based in China, The Man Who Rode the Tiger by Charles Sailor and did a web search and came across your wonderful website.

    Interesting stuff.

    Thank you,
