National Chung Hsing University was established in 1919 as the first institute of agronomy in Taiwan, where it has been an important cradle for the formation of agronomists and a database for agricultural and forestry policies. The past hundred years of hands-on commitment have led to its alumni being spread throughout the world, contributing in an outstanding way to production, management and scholarship. To commemorate the auspicious occasion of the University’s centenary, Chunghwa Post is planning a set of two stamps. A detailed description of the stamps follows:
1. NT$8 stamp: An important symbol of the University is its main entrance on Xingda Rd., Taichung City, built in a style which combines Germanic pillars with a Chinese ceremonial arch.
2. NT$28 stamp: The Small Auditorium is the only surviving building on campus from an earlier era. It has served as a lecture hall for meetings, speeches and cultural events and is now used for student exhibitions and performances, a keypoint alumni fondly remember.
(1) First Day Cover (162mm×114mm): NT$2 apiece
(2) Folder (with or without mount): NT$5 apiece
(3) Loose-leaf album page: NT$8 apiece
(4) Pre-cancelled FDC affixed with one NT$8-denominated stamp: NT$10
(5) Pre-cancelled FDC affixed with a complete set of stamps: NT$38
