The Dr. Yin Hai-Kwong Residence was completed in 1945 in Alley 16， Lane 18， Wenzhou St.， a neighborhood designated by Taihoku Imperial University (present-day National Taiwan University， or NTU) during the Japanese colonial. They were intended for professors' dormitories， and nestled in a kind of lushness that was unique to academia. After relocating from mainland China in 1949， Dr. Yin Hai-Kwong taught philosophy at Taihoku Imperial University while contributing articles of political criticism to the Free China Journal. As a man who would rather die a critic than live muted， Dr. Yin was a warrior fighting with a pen despite the rigorous censorship. He stood up bravely against the then-authoritarian regime with unbridled political criticism， exerting a strong influence on Taiwan's progress toward democracy， as an iconic figure in the history of Chinese liberalism. The residence is a one-story， Japanese-style wooden structure built on a triangular base， adjacent to the other dormitories. In May 2003， the Taipei City Government designated it as a historic site that housed a significant collection of cultural assets. The Dr. Yin Hai-Kwong Foundation in November 2008 took over the operation and maintenance of the residence， recently serving as a facility for NTU's outdoor education activities.
