JOHOR BARU: Mentri Besar Datuk Mohamed Khaled Nordin recently launched the EC 100th Years Book, which was published in conjunction with the 100th anniversary
of Maktab Sultan Abu Bakar (MSAB).
The 384-page coffee table book features 100 prominent college alumni members.
Among them are the current Sultan of Johor Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar, the previous Sultan of Johor Almarhum
Sultan Iskandar Sultan Ismail, Malaysia’s third Prime Minister Tun Hussein Onn, and former deputy prime minister Tun Musa Hitam.
Other former students include Royal Prof Ungku Aziz Ungku Abdul Hamid, politicians Lim Kit Siang and Datuk Chua Jui Meng, as well as academicians Prof Datuk Dr Syed Hussein Alatas and Prof Dr Syed Muhammad Naquib Syed Ali al-Attas.
“Former and current students of MSAB should be proud of our alma mater’s achievement in the past 100 years, and the success achieved by a number of its
alumni,” said Mohamed Khaled
at the launch of the book last week.
Mohamed Khaled, who
attended the school from 1972 to 1977, hoped that the current students could learn from the experience of the former students who helped in the development of Malaysia.
Previously known as English College, MSAB was founded on March 21, 1914 with an enrolment of 21 students.
The college was then located at Istana Sungai Chat, opposite Lido Beach, Johor Baru.
In 1930, the institution
moved to its present site at
Jalan Sungai Chat and the name was changed to MSAB, after the late Sultan of Johor, Sultan
Abu Bakar Temenggong
