In commemoration of China’s 1911 Xinhai Revolution,
a “Chan Chak Archives Donation Ceremony” was held on July 22, 2011 at Hainan Province Archives, Haikou, Hainan.
The donation was made by the family of Admiral Chan Chak, a patriotic hero, represented at the ceremony by his son, Donald Chan.
The archival materials include Chan Chak’s wartime dairies, correspondence, medals, and award certificates.
A brief account of Admiral Chan Chak’s life and achievements was given.
The archives were described as valuable for future research.
Donald Chan also remarked that the archives would preserve historically important materials for future generations
to learn about their heritage, especially that of the Hainan people.
