Wu Tingfang

Wu Tingfang (also referred to as Ng Choy) was a Chinese diplomat and politician who served as Minister of Foreign Affairs and briefly as Acting Premier during the early years of the Republic of China. He studied at St. Paul's College, in Hong Kong (a British colony at the time) where he learnt to read and write English, and later studied law in England at University College London and was called to the bar at Lincoln's Inn in 1876, becoming the first ethnically Chinese barrister in history. After returning to Hong Kong, he became the first ethnically Chinese unofficial member of the Legislative Council of Hong Kong.
