Chinese Laundries: San Diego Chinese Historical Museum Aug 11, 2007

The positive reception to my talk at the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum led to an invitation to return to speak about the Chinese Laundries book, especially since this venue has a number of artifacts, photographs, etc. related to the many Chinese laundries that used to exist in San Diego.


After the talk, I met Henry Wong who had a sister and other relatives that had operated grocery stores in Arkansas.  He proved to be an invaluable contact a year later when I was researching for a book about Chinese grocery store owners in the Mississippi River Delta.
