Professor Ya Yen Lee Memorial Library
As a tenured professor and world-class head and neck radiologist at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, Ya-Yen Lee M.D., was highly respected by his peers, and greatly loved among Taiwanese-Americans. Though a passionate advocate for Taiwanese identity within his own community, he believed equally as passionately in making the larger Houston community cognizant of Taiwanese-American issues and accomplishments.
The new library, which bears his name, carries on this tradition. Featuring rotating displays and permanent collections of cultural artifacts, photographs and books in both Taiwanese and English, the Ya-Yen Lee Memorial Library has been, for many, an introduction to Taiwan, and for many others, a means to learn more about a small nation that has achieved great prominence on the world stage.
This library is the first Taiwanese American installation, which publicly collect and display the historic archives of Taiwanese Americans.
