A compilation of papers (in English and Chinese) that examines the two Chinese leaders.

Tan Kah Kee (1874-1961) was the father-in-law of Lee Kong Chian (1893-1967). Both were successful businessmen who were also active civic leaders, but who pursued different political paths.

P31 “Tan Kah Kee’s major legacy was more narrowly confined to education with tangible results and depth of impact. On the other hand, Lee Kong Chian’s major legacy, Lee Foundation, was rich in funds and had broader influences in society.”
