Was Tai-Da founded in 1925 or 1928?

Postby Zla'od » 22 Apr 2012, 18:23

I have come across two alternative founding years for Taihoku Imperial University, now National Taiwan University. Does anyone know whether classes were being held in 1925, or would this have to be one of its predecessor institutions?

There was a lot of groundwork to do before the university was established. So perhaps the earlier date had something to do with that. But from what I've seen 1928 -- March 17, 1928, to be exact -- is the official date.

Tai-Da, for example, put out a memorial album in 2008 to mark the school's 80th anniversary.

Thank you Cranky! I guess 1928 really was the beginning. I'll have to start a new thread asking about other schools in Taihoku...
