|Taiwanese American Archives台美史料中心 November 2018 issue NO. 43 NEWSLETTER http://www.taiwaneseamericanhistory.org Happy Thanksgiving Holidays to Everyone! • “Thank You” to All Our Supporters: |
This is our 5th year of managing T. A. Archives’ website and center. With your support by providing us with information, articles, books & artifacts, we have collected T. A. history in the last seven decades to some extent. We thank you heartily. For the committee members in the “Article Committee” of “My Stories”/“Our Journeys” and the “Selection Committee” of “Outstanding Taiwanese Americans”, we thank you for your many years’ volunteer services. We still have a long journey for achieving our goals. Therefore, we need much more support from T. A. Community urgently because we are racing against our limited time and human resources. • The Project of Outstanding Taiwanese Americans (O. T. A. ): 180 Outstanding Taiwanese Americans have been selected by the Selection Committee and posted in the link: http://taiwaneseamericanhistory.org/outstanding-taiwanese-american
Presentations, Private Collections, and Portraits of Outstanding Taiwanese Americans displayed in the Center
Please help to recommend your T. A. Friends for our consideration. There are three major criteria for being selected as an O. T. A. : Make significant contributions to (1) Taiwanese American Community, (2) Main Stream Society and (3) Professional Fields. • Translation of Articles and Information Posted on Our Website from Hajii into English:
Our goal is to translate all articles and information posted on T. A. Archives’ website in Hajii to English as soon as possible. We need help from authors of those posted articles to translate their articles into English. • Book Series of Taiwanese American History (台美人歷史叢書)： Looking for individuals and T. A. organizations to work with us on this project. Any subject is welcome as long as it is related to T. A. history. Please contact us if you are interested in knowing more information. From the collected information on our current website, we can prepare 10 or more books. But, we hope to have many more books created by your organizations and you. • Volunteers Are Needed: It may take a few hours of your time a week to help us in many of our jobs and projects, such as uploading collected information and articles to T. A. Archives’ website, compiling mailing list, filing and organizing books, tapes, CDs in the library, preparing publications of book series of T. A. History, etc.. Most of the jobs can be worked at your convenient time and at your home.
