Jun 30, 2017 Culture Comments Off on Documents on late President Chiang Ching-kuo available online
Taipei--Over 10,000 documents related to late President Chiang Ching-kuo (???), including declassified documents, have been made public in a digital format as part of the government's "open government" policy, Academia Historica said Friday.
The 11,683 documents related to Chiang made public on June 28 include photos, video clips, speech notes, monographs, memorabilia and summaries of talks with guests, according to the country's top national archive.
Other documents made public the same day were 3,560 volumes of documents related to the Judicial Yuan, and 3,457 documents related to late Chinese politician Wang Zhaoming (???), better known as Wang Jingwei (???), Academia Historica said.
The Judicial Yuan documents consist mostly of documents from before 1949 when the Republic of China (ROC) government was still in mainland China, and include legal interpretations, compilations of laws and regulations and administrative data.
The Wang Zhaoming documents include telegrams, letters and photos of the politician from between 1925 and 1944.
Wang was a controversial figure in modern Chinese history. He was a close associate of Sun Yat-sen (???), the founding father of the ROC, and was known for his contributions to the Xinhai Revolution, a nationwide rebellion in 1911 that toppled Qing Dynasty rule.
He was later branded a traitor, however, for his collaboration with the Japanese Empire to form a Japanese-backed regime in Nanjing during the Second Sino-Japanese War.
The more than 150,000 pages of newly released digital documents can be accessed for free on the website of Academia Historica (http://ahonline.drnh.gov.tw) or at the reading room of the organization in downtown Taipei.
For certain documents, users will have to apply online for access.
Academia Historica launched its digital search system on Jan. 5. It finished uploading some 260,000 digital documents related to late ROC President Chiang Kai-shek (???) by the end of April after declassifying them.
The organization said it is planning to release more documents relating to Chiang Ching-kuo, late ROC President Yen Chia-kan (???), and late ROC Vice President Chen Cheng (??) in the next stage of its project to digitize historical documents.s
