This chapter discusses the governors of Hong Kong during the late nineteenth century and their effect on society. After years of experiencing difficulties and the perceived quarrelsome nature of the Hong Kong civil servants, it was decided that the country needed a strong governor who had wide powers and the backing of the colonial office. These governors affected several facets of society, such as the education of Chinese girls, the police force, and Roman Catholic schools.
