Rutian Mi is the recipient of the 2019 Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame Fellowship for his project The history of Chinese business in Queensland.
Rutian’s project will focus on Chinese businesses in Queensland during 1840-1940 with two case studies: Kwong Sue Duk and Tom See Poy (also known as Taam Sze Pui). The project aims to both interrogate the collections of the John Oxley Library and help contribute new knowledge to the history of Chinese businesses in Queensland.
