CNAC CEO Col. Wong Tsu

"June 3, 2007
     I am editing the papers and photographs of my grandfather Captain Bruce G Leighton who was vice president of CAMCO and Intercontinent Corporation in China 1937-1939. Colonel Wong Tsu worked with my grandfather because the colonel was the chief government representative at the factories and seems to have remained so from the factory's first location at Hankow to its eventual transfer to Loiwing at the top of the Burma Road in 1939.
     I have posted on Dan Ford's website ( a photograph taken by my grandfather that I believe shows Wong Tsu in the middle wearing a dark cut away suit. the picture I believe was taken at the time of the opening of the Loiwing factory in 1939. You will see in the picture, Bill Pawley the president of CAMCO/Intercontinent on the far left at the back ( black hair, white shirt) and on the far right in shorts, wearing a tie, C.W. Hunter the top manager of the Loiwing factory. Others in the photo include ed Pawley, brother of Bill (third from right)
     I would be very interested to be able to identify all of the Chinese in this photograph.
I very much look forward to your eventual response
kind regards

From the Project Manager:
The Aircraft Year Book Project, started on 25 July, 2003, is an online archive of the Aircraft Year Books published by the Aeronautical Chamber of Commerce of America Inc. The Aircraft Year Books are an excellent primary source of information for researchers in the field of aviation history. The series starts in 1919 and continues up into the early 1960s. Although the books are not particularly rare, it can be difficult to obtain access to the books and it can be quite expensive to buy an entire set. Because of the value of the information that the books provide, and due to the difficulty of obtaining access to these books, the Aviation History Online Museum is creating an online archive of the Aircraft Year Books.
