Over 3,000 documents from Tan Sri (Dr) Tan Chin Tuan’s Private Papers have been donated to ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute from the Tan family and the Tan Chin Tuan Foundation. Over six months, these documents have been digitised for access through online browsing. TCTF Council member Ms Chew Gek Hiang fondly recalled Tan Sri’s acts of philanthropy, “My grandfather really cared for others. He taught us to recognise that there are people in need of help and reminded us to give back. We have learned so much from him and hope that more people will be able read these documents and be inspired by his acts of kindness.”
