30. Newsletter of T.A. Archives to TAA/President/Local and USA

​Dear President of TAA/Local Chapter :

Formosan Clubs and Taiwanese American Associations ( TAA) are important T. A. organizations in our history. Also it is the early ones, playing the leading role for many other T. A. organizations to happen later.

Some of these earlier ones are still active after more than five decades, but unfortunately some had ceased their operation. It is time for us to collect and record the historical information, documents, articles, photos and artifacts of these organizations.

T.A. Archives has been embarking this ambitious project. With the help of some T. A., we have accomplished a small portion of this project. The information are collected on the website and the related publications and artifacts are displayed in T. A. Archives Center in Irvine , CA.  We urgently need much more help from our community before it is too late.

We have learned that you were the President of local TAA and the President of TAA/USA.

You probably still keep some of information, publications, photos and artifacts of local TAA and/or TAA/USA. Please contact us if  you can donate or share those historical information and artifacts with us.

The below is a summary table of the important historical information of 93 Formosan Clubs and TAAs (arranged by State), which we have found so far. There are lots of missing information( with ??? marks). If you have those information, please let us know. Also if we missed some ones or have incorrect information, please let us know too.
