100 Years of Chinese American History in MN
A project of: Minnesota Historical and Cultural Grants Program
Chinese American Academic and Professional Association in MN
To add to the known history of the Chinese experience in Minnesota in the years 1911-2011, the CAAPAM conducted oral history interviews of Chinese Americans to gather information about their memories of immigration and settlement in Minnesota in relation to historical events happening in the homeland after 1970.
The interviewees were chosen to represent diverse periods, backgrounds, lengths of residency and professions.
Information gathered from the interview process was combined with addtional photographs and added to previous records and collections. The summary, transcription and recordings were translated and made available to the public on the CAAPAM website and on DVD's found at the CAAPAM Library.
