For example, if you enter "US Taiwan Defense Command" (in quotes), you'll be told that the search did not identify any documents. However, if you look further down the page, you'll see "Try Google News Archive Search." Click on that and you'll see a chart of all the available articles, shown by year, followed by a listing of links.
The bad news is that many of the available articles are from the New York Times, which charges $3.95 for any article that you want to read. The good news is that there are several other articles that are free.
John found these tidbits:
- An article from December 29, 1962, describing the arrival of Bob Hope in Taipei for a USO show.
- A July 1, 1964, article about VADM Gentner assuming command of USTDC from VADM Melson.
I doubt that I'll spring for any of the premium articles, but if I see something especially interesting, I may change my mind.
