New Zealand Chinese Heritage Research Charitable Trust Collection

Dr James and Eva Ng’s collection on the New Zealand Cantonese. (James Beattie with Duncan Campbell, a foremost bilingual authority in New Zealand on Chinese literature, have seen much of the Ng collection. They consider it has breadth and depth with revealing features which will re-write NZ history – ‘A collection with primary material of this nature is not available even in America.’). It includes missionary Rev Alexander Don’s surviving diaries & goldminers photographic collection, Chinese books, primary material including letters written in Chinese and 150 audio tapes of Eva & Jim’s parents’ generation
