(8 April 2014) You are cordially invited to visit the Exhibition of the “Deacons Archives” which will be held at Special Collections, 1/F Main Library, The University of Hong Kong, from 4th – 28th April 2014.
The Deacons Archives contains the bulk of the early surviving records of Deacons and its predecessors, including client deeds and papers, wills and probate, deceased estate client files, powers of attorney, business contracts and agreements, certificates, legal correspondence, accounting records, and more. The date range for the Archives is from 1846 to 2007, with a bulk date range between 1880s and 1950s. This surely provides valued information reflecting the social and economic conditions of Hong Kong particularly in the late nineteenth century and the early twentieth century.
