The generosity of four men, two of them well-known Jewish benefactors, has enabled the Royal Ontario Museum to acquire the Wu Library, consisting of about 40,000 volumes, making the Museum possessor of the third largest Chinese library in North America. The Jewish donors are Sigmund Samuel of this city and Sir Robert Mond of London, England.
