Taiwan in the Eyes of a Western Traveler--John Thomson’s Footprints in Formosa
John Thomson(1837-1921)is regarded as a pioneering photographer in the 19th century. He traveled to Far East, documenting the portraits, landscapes and eastern cultures profoundly through his lens and these photographs have become precious historical records. Although John Thomson only stayed in Taiwan for a few days, the images and notes he left are valuable historical materials for the research into Taiwan in the 1870s.His story could be comparable to Shen Bao-zhen, one of the figures in 「Traveling in Time」Exhibition. They were the travelers who came to Taiwan in the same time period. Through their stories, we can learn how they interpret Formosa in the 19th century.

Services

In order to further develop historical research in Taiwan and promote the use of archival materials to serve academics, the Archives of the Institute of Taiwanese History (the ITH Archives) collects important archives relating to Taiwan’s history not only in Taiwan but also abroad. Some archives are donations and some are purchases. The archives can be classified based on their source into three categories: Personal Papers and Collections, Family and Folk Papers and Institutional Archives. After the Archives of the ITH fellows reorganize archives, the ITH Archives welcomes people to retrieve the materials which are open to use. In addition, the ITH Archives also provides services such as reproduction, digital image authorization, reference consultation and guided tours for the public. Related information and service introductions are as follows. We fully welcome everyone to utilize the sources of the ITH Archives.
