1961 Taiwan Telephone Book

LTC Scott Ellinger again has provided some very interesting material. It is the 1961 Taiwan military telephone book, and it is extensive.

NOTE: Drop me an e-mail and you'll be sent the 2 PDF Adobe files containing the 111 page book.

This Taipei map isn't to scale, but it shows locations that may not have been on later maps.

Some of the pages were scanned just to identify the locations covered.

MAAG, USTDC and every branch of the U.S. military and every location on the island where a telephone was located is included.

From the kitchen to the commanding officer, you will find a number where they could be reached.

It's impressive how, in 15 years, the U.S. presence in Taiwan had grown and just how thorough the landline connections were throughout the island.

. . . From here to there . . .

Some are universal military abbreviations, and some are unique to Taiwan.
