NOTE: Collections items are not for sale. You may, however, purchase a reproduction image of this item if you see a "BUY" button.

Description The project includes thirty-nine interviews with Minnesotans who speak about their Asian backgrounds. Some emigrated from Asian countries as children and spent much of the twentieth century in Minnesota; other narrators were born in the state and grew up as the children or grandchildren of immigrants; and others are newer Minnesotans, having arrived in the 1960s and 1970s. Many of the interviews were conducted by Sarah Mason in preparation for writing several chapters for a book, They Chose Minnesota (St. Paul: Minnesota Historical Society Press, 1981), which examines the variety of ethnic backgrounds in Minnesota's history.
