Chan's cremated remains were never taken after his death and are still available at the Oregon State Hospital to be claimed by anyone who is related. More information is available at http://www.oregon.gov/oha/amh/osh/pages/cremains.aspx

A book by David Maisel and a documentary by Ondi Timoner & Robert James, both entitled "Library of Dust" also provide more information.

Chan was born in Korea in 1870. He immigrated to the US about 1906. He was single and was a laborer in Josephine County in southern Oregon.

On 9/16/1936 he was admitted to the Oregon State Hospital, a residential facility in Salem, Oregon for the treatment of people with mental illness. After living there for 1 year and 9 months he died from diabetes at the institution at the age of 68.
