This is a volume of collected stories and vignettes of the extended Hochstadt Clan of Singapore. Singapore’s Hochstadt family was established in Singapore when Philip Peter Hochstadt settled in Singapore in the 1870s after a colourful career that included being Police Superintendent of Sarawak.
Among his famous descendants are John Hochstadt, who founded the Singapore Casket Company and Herman Hochstadt, former Permanent Secretary at the Ministries of Finance and Law and current patriarch of the Clan. Rex Shelley, noted Eurasian community leader and author was also a member of the Clan.
This new book provides a fascinating glimpse into the lives and traditions of Singapore’s Eurasian community over the past 150 years.
