Yang Yun-ping Papers (楊雲萍文書)
Yang Yun-ping was one of the founders of the “Everyone”, the first vernacular literary magazine in Taiwan. He was mentored by Kawabata Yasunari and Kan Kikuchi when studied at the Institute of Japanese Culture in Japan, and that made great impact on his creative style. Yang began to dedicate himself to researches on Taiwan history and culture after returning to Taiwan, and got a teaching job at Department of History, National Taiwan University in 1947. The Yung Yun-ping Papers contains various forms of correspondence with government agencies, non-government organizations, and individuals as well as his manuscripts, with coverage date from the mid period of Japanese rule to post-war period.
V. Conclusion

Combining features of the mountains, river, ocean, and cultures, Tamsui attracted many artists to sketch from the 1930s to the 1980s. Their paintings represent historic stories told by Tamsui over the past one hundred years. Although Tamsui has become modern since the development of the Taipei metro and real estate, the sites of its military forts, the images of a busy trading port, and histories witnessed by the mountains themselves still exist in old photographs and senior artists’ paintings.
