​NTU Library is organising an exhibition titled Lee Wee Nam: Life and Times of a Philanthropist

In 2001, Lee Wee Nam’s family donated $10 million to the Nanyang Technological University 21st Century Fund. This was the largest private sector donation to NTU and it was a major boost to the then newly formed NTU School of Biological Sciences, marking the first step towards the establishment of a medical school in NTU.

In honour of the generous donation, which established the Lee Wee Nam Professorship in Life Sciences, Library 1 was renamed the Lee Wee Nam Library. 

In 2007, the Lee family donated another $5 million for the establishment of the Lee Wee Nam Science and Technology Library Collection Endowment Fund. 

This exhibition is a tribute to the man who inspired these generous donations.
