In Memory of Professor Mimi Chan

Professor Mimi Chan was a legend. Entering HKU as a King Edward VII scholar, she graduated in 1961 with a B.A. with First Class Honors in English Language and Literature, and was awarded the Chan Kai-Ming Prize for Best Arts Graduate. On a Commonwealth Scholarship, she obtained her M.Phil. from the University of London in 1967. She had taught English language and literature at HKU for over thirty years before retiring as a professor. All the King’s Women is her first work of historical fiction. Her publications also include Fossils from a Rural Past: A Study of Extant Cantonese Children’s Songs (with Helen Kwok) and Asian Voices in English (co-edited with Roy Harris).
