The legacy of Elder Sang-Yong Nam
Elder Sang-Yong Nam, who died March 29, arrived at U-M from Korea in 1964. He found few books about Korea in the U-M library and a lack of Korean art in the U-M Museum of Art. It became his dream to correct the disparity and make U-M a premier center for Korean studies. Over the years Elder Nam became the largest benefactor of the Nam Center for Korean Studies at the International Institute, pledging more than $4 million and making it one of the top programs in the country.
