The Sir Lindsay and Lady Ride Memorial Fund
The Sir Lindsay and Lady Ride Memorial Fund subsidises the publication of serious works on Hong Kong history, society and culture which would otherwise not be commercially viable. These are published under the imprint of the Royal Asiatic Society Hong Kong Studies Series.
The Fund also provides limited financial assistance to independent authors for research projects which fall within the Society’s range of interests. The Fund was established in 2003 by the Royal Asiatic Society Hong Kong and is named after the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Hong Kong 1949-1964 and his wife, both founder members of the RASHK. The initial funding by the branch was supplemented by a generous donation from Lady Clague, wife of the late Sir Douglas Clague.
Details of the books that have been published can be found here.
Applications for subsidy, for financial assistance or donations may be addressed to The Chairman of the Trustees, Sir Lindsay and Lady Ride Memorial Fund, 11D Alpine Court, 12 Kotewall Road, Hong Kong, for consideration by the Trustees.
