New documents give rare insight into Mr OCBC

9 Mar 2016, The Straits Times

Banker and philanthropist Tan Sri (Dr) Tan Chin Tuan was known to be a private person. While there are several books about Mr Tan, who was known to be a private person, they have focused on his corporate career as a banker. Personal anecdotes and little-known philanthropic acts were revealed in Mr Tan’s private papers, which were handed over by the Tan Chin Tuan Foundation to the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS)-Yusof Ishak Institute yesterday. The papers will be made available to the public – in digital form – in the next three months.
