My great-grandaunts and their tutor

Updated: Oct 11, 2023

A bit of family history from my cousin Mei Lynn.
The women were probably born between 1869 and 1883 (Wu 1959:139-140). They were the sisters of Wu Lien-Teh (the uncle of my paternal grandmother). I had no idea they were educated by a British woman (apparently known as "Missy Merah" [Miss Red]) and that English education for girls in my family began a generation earlier than I had thought.


Wu Lien-Teh. 2014. Plague fighter: the autobiography of a modern Chinese physician. Penang: Areca Books. Original ed. W. Heffer & Sons Ltd, 1959.
