(1867-1919). Pioneer medical missionary in China. He was born in Kwangtung, China, and in 1882 went to the United States to obtain an education. While there he accepted Seventh-day Adventist beliefs and subsequently attended Healdsburg College and California Medical College (1896-1900). For several years Law Keem operated a private sanitarium in California. In 1904 he married Edith Miller, a graduate nurse, and in 1905 they became the fifth family to be sent by the mission board to China. There he promoted SDA work by opening chapels and dispensaries in several places in the southern and southwestern provinces. He died at his station at Nanning, Kwangsi province.
