Introduction to Mr. Szeto Wah

Mr. Szeto Wah, more commonly known as UncleWah, was a well-respected legend in the local educational sector. He was the founder of the Hong Kong Professional Teachers’ Union. In addition to being an educator, Mr. Szeto was also active in Hong Kong political scene since the mid-1970s. He was former Chairman of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements in China, a co-founder of the Democratic Party, and a member of the Legislative Council from 1985 to 2004. He died of cancer on January 2, 2011. 
 
        After Szeto Wah's death, his personal collection of books, letters and records were donated by his family to the University of Hong Kong Libraries (HKUL) with a view to preserving the entirety of Szeto Wah's collections and serving as a testimony of his life and works.  HKUL is deeply grateful to his family's generous donation. Since the takeover ceremony in January 2012, these materials, comprising more than 10,000 items of books, periodicals, documents, manuscripts, speeches, notes, letters and artifacts were transferred to the Special Collections,  HKUL for organizing, cataloging and digitizing to become easily accessible materials for users and researchers. They are named Szeto Wah Collection and permanently housed in the Special Collections of HKUL.  In the year 2019/2020, Special Collections obtained the HKU Knowledge Exchange Fund granted by the University Grants Committee to make Szeto Wah Collection more widely known to the general public.
