  Kao, Wen-liang
 Kao was born in 1890 and graduated from the Imperial University of Tokyo. Fellow villagers called him “Cousin Wen-liang”. He acted as the village master for two terms during the Japanese occupation.
 When ROC restored the island, Kao served as the transient village master. He then became the first elect village master. Later on, he was elected to be a county councilor.
 During the Japanese period, the air force levied a village for erecting a military airport, which was later on rebuilt into today’s Gongshan airport. The entire village moved to another area and farmers could not find sufficient fields to cultivate and feed the family.
   Kao bought seeds of mat straw from Taichung and employed technicians, who taught villagers to cultivate mat straw and braid mats. Farmers transported the mats to adjacent villages and sold them there. Straw mats enabled the villagers to survive.
