Fred Dow for Colorado Reflections

Identifier: couda-dow


Fred Dow, a professor at the University of Colorado Denver, discusses the influx of Chinese immigrants into the state of Colorado providing labor for mines, railroads, and other labor industries in the 1860s and 1870s. Dow discusses his family history and heritage as a Chinese American. Dow traces the mass migration of Chinese immigrants from the 1840s, factors contributing to the "great migration," describes the mostly young, single, male population of Chinese workers, and describes the decline of the Chinese community in Colorado. Reflects on the establishment of Hop Alley and the nature of community relationships through clans and associations.
