Matthew Nathan

Matthew Nathan was an English Jew , who served as governor of Sierra Leone in 1899 and then Gold Coast, before becoming Governor of Hong Kong and later Queensland where he set up the Great Barrier Reef Committee. Interesting to look further to see if he brought any practices along with him in his travels. I wonder if there was some experience in West Africa that found its formalisation in Hong Kong.
