CHSA continues to celebrate the life and contributions of Him Mark Lai. He would have turned 87 years old today.
According to UC Berkeley’s Professor Ling-chi Wang, Him Mark Lai’s rescue, collecting, cataloguing, preservation, and sharing of historical sources in both Chinese and English opened the field of Chinese American history to scholars and researchers in the US and across the Pacific. Generations of historians and writers have relied, and will continue to draw, upon Him Mark Lai’s insights & prodigious scholarship.
CHSA will launch a newly designed Him Mark Lai Digital Archive in the upcoming weeks.
