    Chungchin Chen 陳 仲 欽 (2022). On The Banks of Hudson River: My American Journey (Second Edition). In: “Evolutionary Progress in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM)”, Lawrence K. Wang 王 抗 曝 and Hung-ping Tsao 曹 恆 平 (eds.), 4 (12A), STEAM-VOL4-NUM12A-DEC2022. 121 pages.

ABSTRACT: Born 1935 in Taiwan, ROC, and spent most of his adult years in America, the author depicted in chronical order those memorable occurrences during a 70-year span of his life. Chapters 1 to 5, accounting for about one-third of the volume, were devoted to his family origin, closed family members, growing adolescent years, and educational experience in Taiwan up to the end of 1962. The relatively lengthy Chapter 6 described the pivotal transitional years in life when he came to the U.S. in 1963 to pursue his graduate study of city and regional planning at the University of California at Berkeley. The remaining rest of the book covered his 38 years of professional career as a city and regional planner in the U.S. The jurisdictional area of the four-county Capital District Regional Planning Commission of New York State strides over the upper Hudson River and where the author practiced most of his 38-year planning profession until the summer of 2003. Therefore, this book was entitled “On the Banks of Hudson River—My American Journey”. Throughout this biographical book, the author also identified the times and places of those certain individuals whom he met and some significant historical events which he happened to witness.
