Naming of the Research Centre for Chinese Ancient Texts

previouspausenext

The University Council has approved the renaming of the Research Centre for Chinese Ancient Texts of the Institute of Chinese Studies as the D.C. Lau Research Centre for Chinese Ancient Texts, in recognition of Professor Lau’s distinguished contributions to the centre. The late Professor D.C. Lau had devoted his time to the research of ancient Chinese texts after his retirement from CUHK in 1989. He established the CHANT Database and compiled The ICS Ancient Chinese Texts Concordance Series, which laid a solid foundation for the centre. Professor Lau had named the centre the sole beneficiary of his will before his death in April 2010. His residuary estate, comprising HK$21.36 million in cash and the royalties proceeding from his translations, Lao Tzu: TaoTe Ching, Mencius, and Confucius: The Analects, were donated to the centre.
