In order to write my thesis, I checked the collection of Xu Yunqiao's books in major libraries in Taiwan. Xu may not be familiar with Taiwanese academic circles, but because of his preference for donating books during his lifetime, many academic institutions such as National Taiwan University, Normal University, Tsinghua University, Chengda University, and Sun Yat-Sen University all have some of Xu's remaining books and journals, such as The National Taiwan University Library has a volume of "History of Nanyang" written by Xu Shi, the title page reads "Benefits of National Taiwan University Library - Xu Yunqiao"; there is also a Chinese translation of the "Malay Chronicle" with a cover on the title page. There is an English offset print of the book donated by Xu Shi, then the director of the Southeast Asian Institute of Nanyang University.
Another example is the Chengda University Library, which collects some important publications edited by Xu: "Nanyang Journal" Vol. 1 No. 1 - Vol. 21 No. 2 (1940-1979), "Southeast Asian Studies" No. 2, Volumes 4 and 7 (1966-1971). While we are still thinking about company banner design how to create the connection of knowledge and the interweaving of cultures between Taiwan and Southeast Asian countries, Hsu used his own efforts to expand the academic network in an age when his resources were scarce. The Unfinished Business of the Historical Materials of Sinology in Southeast Asia Xu Yunqiao, known as the "Master of Southeast Asian Studies", devoted his life to academic research and wrote many books. In 2004, Professor Zheng Liangshu, a Malaysian sinologist, convened the "Editorial Committee of Xu Yunqiao's Complete Works" headed by him to collect and organize Xu's works, in an effort to publish and preserve the classics.
The Complete Works of Xu Yunqiao has a total of 23 volumes in 8 volumes, covering history and geography of Southeast Asia (5 volumes), overseas Chinese and Chinese in Southeast Asia (2 volumes), historical materials and historiography (3 volumes), phonological and linguistic studies (2 volumes), and special studies (1 volume) , History and Geography (1 volume), Art and Literature Miscellaneous (5 volumes), Foreign Language Translations (4 volumes). The academic tradition of the origin of the Chinese language in Singapore and Malaysia has a long history, and there are few large-scale research works. The complete collection took more than ten years and was finally announced on May 30, 2021. From the compilation to the fundraising, there is no one. Not a tough challenge.
