Commemorative Plaque for Dr James Legge
44 Gough Street

Dr James Legge was born in Scotland in 1815. In 1842, he came to Hong Kong and set up an office of London Mission as well as Ying Wa College in the vicinity of Aberdeen Street and Staunton Street to foster English learning among the Chinese. He had also contributed in revolutionising Hong Kong’s educational system and advocating the establishment of Government Schools. After returning to United Kingdom in his old age, he was appointed as Professor in Sinology at Oxford University, and engaged in the research on translation of Chinese classics until he died in 1897.
