Colleagues and relatives paid tribute to Mrs Lily Tan yesterday, recalling how the former director of the National Archives of Singapore (NAS) had a “great passion” for documenting the Republic’s history.
Mrs Tan died at her Bukit Timah home after suffering a heart attack on Sunday. She was 70. She is known for being one of the archives’ major driving forces after spending 33 years with the organisation – including 22 as its director from 1979.
