Abstract

This article opens a biographical window onto Australian colonial history and, in particular, the coming together of the British and Chinese Empires in colonial Victoria. It takes as its focus the personal history of Fook Shing, a prominent Chinese leader and ‘headman’ at Bendigo during the 1850s, who went on to become colonial Victoria’s longest serving Chinese detective.
