CHRONOLOGY OF FORMOSA HISTORY

The attached .pdf is a photocopy of a Chronology of Formosan History from 605 a.d. to 1942 prepared in 1943 at the U.S. Department of State. I recovered it from the National Archives files of the Office of Chinese Affairs at the State Department.  While it is over 30 pages long and reflects dated research, it remains a fascinating summary of the island's history from ancient times through the Japanese colonial period and should prove invaluable to all scholars of Taiwan's history.
