Lee Kuan Yew in Cambridge
Singapore’s founding father, Lee Kuan Yew, studied Law at the University of Cambridge in the 1940s, and little about the university colleges has changed since then. Lee was the most significant statesman to be a member of Fitzwilliam College, University of Cambridge.
Lee’s expert ability and determination ensured that he graduated First Class in both parts of the Tripos; his Starred First for Part II Law in 1949 placed him at the very top of his cohort. It’s no doubt that Lee’s time in Cambridge were formative in setting the young man up for one of history’s most famous socioeconomic transformations, and students from all over the world now have the opportunity to follow in Lee’s footsteps.
