Lee Teng-hui’s visit to Cornell has been postponed for a second time. The former Taiwan president was originally scheduled to arrive on campus Wednesday and leave on Slope Day with a mission to visit his granddaughter and attend the establishment of the Lee Teng-hui Institute in Duffield Hall. Last week Lee postponed his trip until May 29-31, citing health concerns after he undertook a coronary medical procedure in Osaka, Japan. Yesterday, his staff representatives in Taipei did not cite a reason for delaying his journey. A new date for his visit has not been determined.
