After Chiang's death on January 13, 1988, his personal diaries were obtained by his youngest son, Eddie Chiang Hsiao-yung,
the late husband of the depositor, Elizabeth Chiang Fang Chih-yi.

The original diaries contain sentences that were crossed out in ink. It is believed that these redactions were made years
ago by Chiang Kai-shek, Chiang Ching-kuo, or another individual.
Since the diaries were deposited at Hoover, some passages have been redacted due to family privacy concerns; these will be
made available after 2035. These will be redacted from the use copies with a "2020" annotation in the margin to distinguish
them from the earlier redactions.
