About

This is the story of a black American family living in Taipei, Taiwan for eight years. In 1956, my father was assigned to  Taiwan by the United Sates Air Force Security Service as an  interpreter of Mandarin Chinese. What follows will be a chronicle of our family life leading up to that experience then our time Taipei. Along the way many people American, Chinese and other nationalities provided for an enriching life, long friendships and positive perspectives.

    1. SUSIE,
      It is a work in progress. I am using this blog to place as a prelude to my draft of a novel. My parents have passed. I am still finding information from their papers and friends around the country. Its nice to learn you are interested.

  1. A fun read George, so many similar memories and more than a few unexpected ones. So glad we were in class together for 2 years under the mountain at Dominican. I’m really proud of knowing you and what you have related here my Taiwan schoolmate, thank you!

    1. Will,
      Reuniting with former classmates and the subsequent dialong has added motivation to continue with my project. I am glad to have been a class mate with such wonderful personalities like you, Tad, Luis and others. Thanks for your kind words.

  2. I just found this thru FaceBook and look forward to reading it. I was born 1950 and went to TAS starting in 1958. My brother was a year younger, so we may have come across you and your brother, tho I don’t remember it.
