The Laan Tau (Lantau) Mountain Camp was a retreat above the city of Hong Kong dating back to 1925, which consisted of a number of stone cabins owned by both individuals and church organizations, and which served as a well-loved vacation spot for many foreigners in Hong Kong. The collection consists of the records of the Mountain Camp’s Residents’ Association, which includes meeting minutes, financial statements, records of building repairs, lists of owners, and correspondence related to the organization and management of the camp. Also included in the collection is a history of the Hongkong & Yaumati Ferry which took people to the Lantau island as well as a brief history of the camp from its inception to the 1970s compiled by Carter Morgan and including notes by Jean Moore, Mrs. D. Shilston, and G.S. Kennedy-Skipton.
