Named by Forbes (Aug 1, 1970) as one of the top shipping giants in the world, C.Y. Tung (1912-1982) was the pioneer who devoted his whole life to the modernization of Chinese shipping. His diary, containing more than 1 million Chinese characters, clearly reveals his idealism, his professionalism and his dedication in realizing his dream: to put Chinese merchant ships in international waters and to restore China's maritime greatness to the era of Admiral Zheng He of the Ming Dynasty. At the time of his death in 1982, the Far Eastern Economic Review wrote, "The independent shipowner is a special breed of internationalist, … Tung (the world's largest independent owner in terms of number of ships), … was one of the last of the breed."
董 浩雲（C.Y. Tung, 1912-1982），1970年獲美國《福布斯》雜誌（1970年月8月1日）譽為「世界船業大王」之一，畢生致力於中國遠洋航運的現代化，其日記展示 了他的抱負與專業精神，為實現理想不遺餘力，深盼中國商船遠征國際水域，重振明朝中國「鄭和下西洋」的盛世。1982年，董浩雲猝然而逝，財經雜誌《遠東經濟評論》報導：「獨立船東是國際企業家中相當特別的行當，……董先生（以船隻數量為定，他是世界最大獨立船東）就是這行當中最後幾位之一。」
