A MAN dies and leaves half his estate to the university he was once with.
It's a story you might just skip, but the beneficiary of late British professor George Wadsworth's £900,000 (S$1.77 million) bequest is the National University of Singapore's Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine.
The former professor of physiology at the then University of Singapore had not been here for years.
Prof Wadsworth, who died in England on Dec 9 last year at the age of 94, was the head of the university’s department of physiology from 1961 to 1971.
When he returned home, he took a piece of Singapore with him – his wife, Madam Chua Swee Liew.
