Introduction

This volume is a follow-up to our previous publication of the Diary of Yeh Sheng-ji (1923-1950), a graduate of the medical school of National Taiwan University, and White Terror victim. This book contains his manuscripts and correspondence in prison, during May 29th, 1950, the day he was arrested, and November 29th, 1950, the day he was executed. Correspondence between his family members and friends during this time is also included. These documents reveal how he and his family coped with the sudden tragedy, providing valuable material for understanding the history of the White Terror in Taiwan.
