An artist named Lee Nam, a Chinese immigrant to British Columbia at the turn of the 20th century, is known solely through the journals of Emily Carr. Carr refers to Nam as a painter, a friend, and someone she regarded as a fellow outsider. In her book, The House of All Sorts, Carr, who mounted art exhibitions in her home, recalls how she met Lee Nam.
