Scope and content

Subseries consists of records relating to the functions of the Hoy Yin Association, a benevolent association that was active in Vancouver in the 20th century and that appears to have ceased its operations in the 1970s. The subseries includes records of donations, Association elections, and Association membership; publications of other benevolent associations and community organizations; personal correspondence and photographs sent to or from various men living in Vancouver, who may have been members of the Hoy Yin Association, and their families, friends, and associates; and two C.I.36 certificates.
