The travelling exhibition titled “A Moment in History: Singapore and the 1911 Revolution” is stationed at the NUS Central Library on Level 4 until 31 March 2016. This English-Chinese bilingual exhibition is co-curated by Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall and Hwa Chong Institution, and brings to life the historical links between Singapore, China and Dr. Sun Yat Sen prior to the success of the 1911 Revolution. More importantly, the exhibition highlights the Prominent Trio, namely Teo Eng Hock, Tan Chor Lam and Lim Nee Soon. The Trio were not only keen supporters of Dr Sun Yat Sen and the revolutionary cause, but also hugely contributed to the welfare of the local Chinese community, especially in education.
In conjunction with the exhibition, a Mandarin talk titled “The Prominent Trio: Singapore and the 1911 Chinese Revolution” will be held at NUS Central Library Theatrette 1 (Level 4) on 31 March 2016 (Thursday) from 12.00pm to 1.30pm. The speaker is Dr. Tan Teng Phee, Curator of Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall. This talk is jointly organised by NUS Chinese Library, The Chinese in Southeast Asia Research Group, NUS Department of Chinese Studies and Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall.
