To commemorate the 95th anniversary of the Institute of History and Philology (IHP), Academia Sinica, an assortment of official documents and scholarly correspondence from our collections has been published to both honor those who came before us and to inspire us as we turn to the future.
Reflecting our anniversary, this volume contains 95 selections from the inauguration of the IHP in 1928 to 1968. It is chronologically divided into four parts: “First Establishment and Early Achievements,” “Perseverance in the Age of Turmoil,” “Relocation and Growth in Taiwan,” and “Challenges and Changes.” More specifically, its contents encompass not only the founding era of the IHP but also the efforts of research fellows in turbulent times brought on by conflict as well as during the relocation and stabilization of the IHP in Taiwan. A table detailing the brief history of the IHP and a list of research fellows is appended to the end of the collection.
