Biographical / Historical

The Chao Center for Asian Studies is a research institute attached to an undergraduate major at Rice University. The Center supports a model of Asian Studies that looks carefully and critically at the complex ways people in 'Asia' have been involved with one another and with the rest of the world, not only today, but also in the past. Toward these ends, they work closely with peer organizations in inter-Asia, indeed, in some cases with those whom they study, and in every case collaborating with scholars who pursue similar questions as they do.

The Chao Center for Asian Studies builds on the core initiatives outlined in Rice University President David Leebron's "Vision for the Second Century." These are: (1) visibly and substantially increasing our commitment to our research mission and raising our research and scholarship profile; (2) aggressively fostering collaborative relationships with other institutions to leverage our resources; (3) becoming an international university, with a more significant orientation toward Asia and Latin America than now characterizes our commitments.

Scope and Contents

This is a collection of oral history interviews conducted by the Chao Center for Asian Studies at Rice University. This collection includes audio recordings and transcripts of interviews with the following Asian Americans native to Houston: Edward Chen, Esther Quan, Gene L. Lee, Lewis Yee, Jane Gee, George Gee, Viola Chan, Wea Lee, Eugenie Chen, and Hannah Chow. The interviewees include a former rocket scientist and high school chemistry teacher, a founding member of the Chinese American Citizens Alliance, a World War II veteran, and the publisher of a Chinese newspaper in Texas and owner of the first Chinese printing company in Houston.

There are currently 147 English language audio interviews in the collection, mostly dating from 2010-2015, with expectation that more new interviews will be added annually.
