A documentary film looking at UBC Library’s acclaimed Wallace B. Chung and Madeline H. Chung Collection premieres on Knowledge Network on May 16. Passage of Dreams: The Chung Collection features UBC alumnus Dr. Wallace B. Chung, whose boyhood fascination with trains inspired him to compile thousands of Canadian Pacific Railway items that offer a glimpse into the lives of early Chinese-Canadian pioneers. Interested viewers are welcome to take a guided tour of the Chung Collection exhibition at UBC’s Irving K. Barber Learning Centre during Alumni Weekend, May 24.
Producer, Passage of Dreams: The Chung Collection
“The moving images of artifacts and documents, combined with the animation of Dr. Chung’s family stories, helped bring to life the larger history of the Chinese-Canadian community and that community’s relationship with the Canadian Pacific Railway.”
