CCS - Ron Bick Lee Fonds

The Bick Lee Fonds was presented by the Lee family to the University of British Columbia’s Asian Library and UBC Initiative for Student Teaching and Research in Chinese Canadian Studies (INSTRCC) on July 11, 2007. The collection consists of records of the Lee family, including those of Ron Bick Lee and Foo Hung Co. The collection includes financial records; mainly account books, business letters and receipts. Other documents included are correspondence, certificates, newspaper clippings, Lee family photographs and published materials kept by Mr. Ron Bick Lee. The fonds provide a unique and invaluable source for understanding the history of British Columbia, Chinese Canadians, and the longstanding ties between Canada and China through the 20th century. The digitized collection can be found in Open Collections, while the physical collection is being housed in UBC Library's Rare Books and Special Collections.
