Volunteer Excellence Award by the Australian Museum and Gallery Association

Congratulations to Professor Emeritus Edmond Chiu AM, Department of Psychiatry, for receiving this year’s Australian Museum and Gallery Association (AMAGA) Victoria Award for Excellence (Volunteer) for his valuable contribution as a Chinese Museum volunteer. During his retirement, Professor Chiu has been a volunteer researcher for the Museum of Chinese Australian History for 10 years. With a grant from the Victorian Government to the Museum, he also wrote a book, with Adil Soh-Lim, on Chinese-Australians during World War Two called For Honour and Country. The book was launched earlier this year.
