The Hong Kong Heritage Project (HKHP) was established to collect and interpret the historical records of the Kadoorie Family and their business and charitable activities, and to make them accessible through an archive facility.

Today, the archive houses a rich collection of primary and secondary sources including more than 150 linear metres of paper records and 500 filmed oral history interviews – the largest oral history collection in Hong Kong. The HKHP archive sheds light on the Kadoorie business history as well as the social and economic development of Hong Kong and Shanghai from 1884 – 1980, holding substantial collections on:

  • Hong Kong's rural communities
  • Hong Kong industry, manufacturing and tourism
  • Hong Kong's post-war rehabilitation and development
  • The Kadoorie Family's connection to the Jewish community

HKHP's archives are available to researchers in line with our access policy. Check out our select archival holdings in Highlight Document, Photo Gallery and Oral History and contact us for specific research enquiries.
