Dr. Arthur K. M. Woo (born in the early 1930s), is from a well-established and famous Hong Kong family. He is a prominent medical doctor and philatelist, who has won over 100 awards. He is also an avid golfer, passionate ornithologist, accomplished pianist and loyal New York Yankees fan. Dr. Woo has traveled the world to increase his knowledge of these subjects. After publishing a limited edition reference work on his stamp collections in 2014, Dr. Woo retired from public view.
