In Loving Memory of Professor L.Y. Chiu

In Loving Memory of Professor L.Y. Chiu

It is with great sadness that members of the Faculty of Arts and the School of Chinese of the University of Hong Kong, mourn the passing of Professor L.Y. Chiu, former Dean of Arts and former Head of Department of Chinese (now School of Chinese). We offer our deepest condolences to his family.

Professor Chiu was always closely connected with the Faculty of Arts. As our distinguished alumnus, Professor Chiu held a BA and MA from the Department of Chinese of the University of Hong Kong in the 1960s. Since 1969, he joined his alma mater to teach various subjects in the Department of Chinese, including the history of Ming and Qing dynasty, history of Chinese-western communications, history of political thoughts, and modern literature. During his tenure at the University of Hong Kong, Professor Chiu served as Dean of Arts, Chair Professor, Head of Department of Chinese, and the founding Head of Department of Japanese Studies. Professor Chiu was a renowned scholar of History, who had nurtured various academics in different local and overseas institutions throughout the decades. Professor Chiu retired in 2001, and he was appointed as Emeritus Professor by the University. He had been Honorary Professor in the School of Chinese.

Professor Chiu was dedicated to supporting teaching and research projects within the Faculty and the School of Chinese. He was key in establishing Hsu Long-sing Research Fund, and Louis Cha Fund for the School of Chinese, bringing international scholars to the Faculty to give academic talks and seminars.

Professor Chiu devoted his life as a scholar and an educator. He had inspired several generations of students, and had become widely respected by his fellow academics worldwide. Fully committed to serving Hong Kong over the last five decades, Professor Chiu had made significant contributions to Hong Kong society.

Professor Chiu’s generous contributions to the School of Chinese, the Faculty, the University and Hong Kong will always be remembered.
