The Chinese Canadian Military Museum Society (CCMMS) of Vancouver, British Columbia completed the project entitled, “Loyalty despite Legislated Restrictions: Chinese Canadian Veteran History.” The goal of the project was to create an exhibition illustrating the impacts of the Head Tax, Exclusion Act and discrimination on Chinese-Canadian war veterans and their families. CCMMS conducted research and interviews with 27 veterans to document their histories. The resulting exhibition and accompanying booklet included collected photographs, Head Tax papers and other documentation, medals, military uniforms, and other artefacts. The photos and interviews were digitized and will be permanently housed by the University of British Columbia (UBC) Library. Learn more about the Veteran here.
