Won Alexander Cumyow – his life and times

alex Won Alexander Cumyow – BC’s first Chinese-born Canadian.   His  remarkable life story was published in the first newsletter of the Chinese Canadian Historical Society of BC newsletter.  I have revised the article and it is now available at the on-line Ormsby Review.  (See link in my December 2016 blog entry.)
