American Dentist V.D. Collins
I found info written by Rudi Butt about an American dentist, Varnum David Collins, who trained Kwan Yuen Cheong in dentistry and gave him his dental kit upon retirement, circa 1857. I have not been able to verify his findings. I emailed him but have not received a reply. Does anyone know if Rudi Butt is still living?
"Kwan before moving to Hong Kong to practice dentisty, apprenticed under American named Collins in Canton."http://hongkongsfirst.blogspot.com
Has anyone come across this dentist, Collins, or found evidence that Kwan apprenticed under him?
I have been searching for this dentist's identity for over twenty years. Kwan Yuen Cheong is my great-great-grandfather.
