Immigrant Oral Histories

Asians in Minnesota Oral History Project

39 INTERVIEWS

DATE: 1978 – 1982

INTERVIEWERS: Sarah M.R. Mason (primary interviewer), Joyce Yu (one interview)

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.
 
LENGTH OF INTERVIEWS: 57 hours 14 minutes

TRANSCRIPTS: 2,324 pages
