ABSTRACT
The article focuses on multimillionaire Eric Hotung, a Hong Kong-born British national of European and Chinese descent. He's the grandson of Sir Robert Hotung, a merchant prince who helped bankroll Sun Yat-sen's 1911 revolution. From that wartime vantage point Hotung was a witness to one of the most painful periods in China's history. That experience helped fuel his lifelong philanthropic impulse, spawning projects from China to East Timor to the U.S.
