Danenberg, Vicente (1884)


Hong Kong nlt.1884. Private practitioner. Objected to register (in accordance with Ordinance #6 of 1884 of April 5, 1884); was allowed to continue to practice. Medical practitioner status recognized by Hong Kong Government in 1897 [1]. Residence: #126 Wongnaich'ung 1897.

[1] On May 8, 1897, the government, under the name of the Colonial Secretary, J.H. Stewart Lockhart, posted a notice in the government gazette to recognize Danenberg's status as a registered medical practitioner. This is rather interesting, not only the government did not punish Danenberg for practicing without a license, but also it gave him a license without his applying for one.
