Chinese history on the Prairies

Our colleagues at the University of Alberta have mounted an exhibition called “The other side of Gold Mountain: Glimpses of Chinese pioneer life on the Prairies.”  The Drs. Chung recently donated a number of documents related to the Chinese history on the Praries to the Bruce Peel Special Collections Library at U of A, and the exhibition also contains several items on loan from the Chung Collection here at UBC.
