This "biography" is what would now be called a "stub" where just enough is known about somebody to list them, but nothing else. Ho did not exhibit his work in any exhibition yet discovered by the editor. There is a smattering of correspondence between the artist and A.S. Grigsby on file at the Vancouver Art Gallery Archives, regarding the possibility of Ho putting work into a show, per below, probably referring to the 1932 PASOVAS exhibition.
Room 1 - 8 W. Pender
August 6, 1932
Mr. A.S. Grigsby
I received your favour and an exhibition entry form on the 4th inst. with many thanks. I very glad that, But I not yet get any picture of my work at present. Now I try to sketch some days. Soon I correspondence to you again for what classification of picture on hand.
Editor's note: it was only when I transcribed Scott's 1940 history of the art school that I realized that Ho was the only member of the first graduating class that did not have a biographical file. This resulted from the simple fact that he did not exhibit anything. With apologies, I now correct the omission, and the "first class" is now fully represented in BC Artists.
