Summary:Chinese Americans are the migrants and their descendants who migrated from China to the United States, starting in approximately 1848. This file contains fifteen documents covering the time period from ca. 1848 to the 1980s. These documents deal with Chinatowns located in several American cities (e.g., San Francisco, New York City), plus additional data on the Chinese American populations in such regional areas as the Monterey Bay region of California, and Hawaii. Much of the file deals with the history of the migration of the Chinese to the United States and the restrictive immigration policies applied to them by the United States government. Additional topics that appear in all the documents in this file are those of the discriminatory and racist practices imposed on the Chinese immigrants by the Caucasian American society, cultural adaptation and acculturation, Chinese associations, and ethnic businesses (e.g., restaurants, laundries, and groceries).
