Daw May Kyi Win (1947-2002) | Northern Illinois University

Name: Daw May Kyi Win (1947-2002)


Historical Note:

Daw May Kyi Win was an associate professor and curator of the Southeast Asian Collection at Northern Illinois Unversity Libraries from 1990 until her death in 2002.  She was the only native Burmese curator in the United States.  She was a member of the Center for Southeast Asian Studies and the Center for Burma Studies at NIU.  She was also a member of the Board of the Burma Studies Foundation.

During her time at Northern Illinois University she greatly contributed to the Burmese Collection, as well as the mainland Southeast Asia Collection through her vast knowledge of languages and literature of the region.  Due in large part to her, the Burmese collections at NIU are some of the largest outside of Myanmar.

May Kyi Win was also the co-author of two books, Historical Dictionary of Thailand, and HIstorical Dictionary of the Philippines and she was the editor of the Bulletin of the Burma Studies Group.
