In 2008 I received a grant from 4Culture to research and write a paper on the Chinese community’s involvement in the AYPE.
My interest in the Chinese evolved from my volunteer work indexing the Chinese Exclusion Act files at the National Archives on Sand Point Way in Seattle. If you would like to know more accessing these records, read my article which was published in APGQ in March 2006.
Other background information about me–Program Chair for the Pacific Northwest Historians Guild Conference on AYPE in March 2009, graduate of MOHAI’s Nearby History writing class, a keen interest in Washington State and Pacific Northwest history, Certified Genealogist and family history researcher.
