Sister Cities: Houston, Texas and Taipei, China Honor China Night
By June Dove Leong
"It was richly
deserved. I am
glad to see that,
it was awarded"
Gene L. Lee,
President of the
Lee Family Asso-
ciation, in ex-
of the Southwest
The honor be-
stowed upon C.B.
Albert Gee who
was presented a
mously by the
City of Houston
and accepted by
his dear wife,
the wave of warm
sentiment of the
overflow crowd at the World Trade Building there to
observe China Night.
Mayor Pro tem Frank 0. Mancuso addressed the multitude...
"C.B. Albert Gee, restauranteur, civic leader, and friend
and adviser to Houston's leading citizens during the past
forty years, a man with untold thousands of warm personal
friends and one held in respect and affection throughout
the Houston community as a whole, was one of the organiz-
ers and a past president of Houston Lodge of Chinese Amer-
ican Citizens Alliance, and the only person outside the
State of California to serve as CACA National Grand Pres-
ident; and whereas, as a 32 degree Scottish Rite Mason and
life member of the Houston Stock Show, cited by the New
York Times in a special supplement as an outstanding citi-
zen, Albert Gee personified both the age-old culture of
China that has given so much wisdom and art to the world
and the multi-national civilization that has melded many
ethnic resources into the American dream of democracy in
which all persons stand in equality and a common citizen-
ship: -now, therefore, be it resolved, that the City Council
of the City of Houston express its respect for and its
sorrow over the passing of C.B„ Albert Gee and convey to
his family and associates its recognition of him as a fore-
most citizen who richly deserved the title of Mayor of the
Chinese Community, and as a person whose warmth and princi-
ples were always exerted in community services and activ-
ities that will long attest the contribution he has made to
the advancement and refinement of the entire Houston com-
munity of which he was so proud and prominent a member."
Mayor Pro tem Mancuso continued..."There is a Chinese prov-
erb that went 'one generation plants the trees, another
enjoys the shade'...Albert certainly laid the ground work
for our younger Chinese Americans."
"I shall always cherish this beautiful tribute to the mem-
ory of my beloved husband"...responded Jane Gee..."It was
only by the Grace of God, all that Albert was privileged
to contribute for the benefit of his fellow man and for
the community in his lifetime, was like bread cast uppn the
waters. The rewards in satisfaction was returned to him
and to me, time and again, a thousand fold. I was privi-
leged to have shared the life of one so truly blessed."
