From United States to Taiwan: 國家寶藏的現況與展望

Taiwan National Treasure (
國家寶藏) is a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization founded in New York since 2017. We believe the history of Taiwan belongs to the people who live in Taiwan. As long as we understand Taiwan’s history subjectively and compressively, we may solidly and truly have our own country. Our past stories are like pieces of puzzle distributed around the world. Over the past hundreds of years, countries such as the US and UK have been collecting intelligence records on Taiwan's societal customs, geography, and its people. These records offer a fresh perspective and distinct angle in reviewing the lives and stories that had happened on this island. We believe it is never too late to pick them up and assemble them. Taiwan National Treasure Foundation is working on collecting and digitalizing Taiwan related documents in U.S National Archives. We are not only collecting documents but also making them become public resource. To deal with numerous documents, database was built to organize the collections systematically. With our self- developed mobile application, collecting document could be a public task and easy for volunteers to get involved in.

Introduction of the speaker:
Kuang-Yuan Hou is current board member and researcher in Taiwan National Treasure Foundation. He is a Ph.D. student in University of Maryland, College Park and his major is civil engineering. The U.S National Archives at College Park is a main facility for collecting documents and open to public. Due to convenience of location, Kuang-Yuan has started to assist Taiwan National Treasure Foundation to build up the catalog of Taiwan-related documents and preview main text of the documents since 2017. He spends about three years to complete the Taiwan-related documents catalog from 1895 to 1986. As a local researcher, he also helps recruit volunteers in DC area and assists them to use self-developed app to complete their own tasks.
