Tan Swee Hong, Death July 1927, Singapore

In the death last Saturday of Mr. Tan Swee Hong, at the age of 87 years, the Straits Chinese Community of Singapore has perhaps lost its doyen. He came from Penang, and for many years was employed in the local branch of the Borneo Company and afterwards joined the Siamese Consulate General as Secretary to the late Mr. Tan Kim Cheng. He married a sister of the late Mr. Chiang hong Lim, the well-known Chinese millionaire of Singapore, by whom he is survived, with one daughter and two sons.
