Hong Kong Heritage Society Archives

The Hong Kong Heritage Society Archives chiefly consist of administrative records, correspondences and writings covering the Society’s activities from its establishment in 1977 to its closure in 1984. Records include meeting agendas and minutes, letters, newsletters, press-cuttings and documents showing the Society’s involvement in conservation campaigns relating to heritage buildings in Hong Kong including Tsim Sha Tsui Railway Station, Victoria Barracks, Tsim Sha Tsui Hill, Murray House and Hong Kong Club. All records except the press cuttings have been digitized. The archives are grouped into three sections. Section one consists of records giving historical and administrative information about the Society. Section two consists of records relating to the campaigns and advocacy efforts undertaken by the Society. Section three gives the list of the press cuttings which are available in hard copy only at Special Collections due to compliance with copyright regulations. The archives brought together records originally donated by Mr David Russell, former Chairman of the Society and materials donated subsequently by Mr William Meacham, former Secretary of the Society, whose knowledge of the Society was crucial in facilitating the current organisation of the archives.
