Anna Marie Lowe recently left a comment below our article, The National Lacquer and Paint Products Co Ltd.

Anna is the granddaughter of Huang Yang-yin, 黃仰賢, aka Harry J. Lowe,co-founder of NLPP  and says he never lived in the United States, as claimed in the original  article though her father Huang Chu-chi and grandmother Mary Cang did.

She met the other co-founder Yan Ben-Kwan, 甄秉鈞, aka Alfonso J. Ben, (1898- 1972) a few times as a child.

“The National Lacquer and Paint Products Company, Limited was founded in 1932 by two major founders, Mr. Alfonso J. Ben and Mr. Harry J. Lowe together with five fellow townsmen in Hong Kong.” (1)

York Lo adds: The only article I am able to find about Harry J. Lowe is this obituary published in 1952.
