Published by Lingnan University and edited by Prof Lau Chi-pang, Coordinator of the Hong Kong and South China Historical Research Programme of Lingnan University, 50 Years of Lingnan Spirit features 50 prominent Lingnanians including the University’s founders, staff, alumni, students and friends. It gives readers the interviewees’ personal insights and perspectives into how Lingnan was transformed from a modest institution into a leading Asian liberal arts university. The book presents stories of Lingnan University’s founders who played crucial roles in helping it to achieve different important milestones through the decades – from the Lingnan College in 1967, to a degree-conferring tertiary institution funded by the then University and Polytechnic Grants Committee in 1991, and to a university in 1999. It also includes special stories and fond memories of alumni and their days in Lingnan, and stories of many others whose lives were transformed by Lingnan’s unique liberal arts education.
