Abstract: The Chinese in California, 1850-1925 illustrates nineteenth and early twentieth century Chinese immigration to California through about 8,000 images and pages of primary source materials. Included are photographs, original art, cartoons and other illustrations; letters, excerpts from diaries, business records, and legal documents; as well as pamphlets, broadsides, speeches, sheet music, and other printed matter. These documents describe the experiences of Chinese immigrants in California, including the nature of inter-ethnic tensions. They also document the specific contributions of Chinese immigrants to commerce and business, architecture and art, agriculture and other industries, and cultural and social life in California. Chinatown in San Francisco receives special treatment as the oldest and largest community of Chinese in the United States. Also included is documentation of smaller Chinese communities throughout California, as well as material reflecting on the experiences of individuals. Although necessarily selective, such a large body of materials presents a full spectrum of representation and opinion. The materials in this online compilation are drawn from collections at The Bancroft Library, University of California Berkeley; The Ethnic Studies Library, University of California Berkeley; and The California Historical Society, San Francisco.
Language: English.

Scope and Content

The Chinese in California 1850-1925 is a compilation of selected holdings from collections housed in the archives and special collections of The Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley; The Ethnic Studies Library, University of California, Berkeley; and the California Historical Society, San Francisco. Presenting approximately 8000 images, this virtual archive makes accessible material related to the history of the Chinese people in California between 1850 and 1925. The materials were selected to illustrate broad topical themes:
  • Chinese and Westward Expansion
  • San Francisco's Chinatown
  • Architectural Space
  • Business and Politics
  • Community
  • Outsiders Looking In
  • Chinese/Chinese-American Communities
  • Agriculture, Fishing, and Related Industries
  • Anti-Chinese Movement and Chinese Exclusion
  • Sentiment Concerning the Chinese: Illustrations from Periodicals
The materials selected are drawn from a variety of archival collections, compiled by institutions and libraries with varying missions. Many of the collections have distinctive histories of their own. In some cases entire collections have been included; more often a selection of materials relating to the Chinese in California has been selected from a collection with broader scope. It is our hope that The Chinese in California presents a balanced perspective on a tumultuous and changing history of this community in California. Major issues explored in these records include the Chinese contribution to California and the American West in the 19th and early 20th centuries; the rampant anti-Chinese sentiment encountered by these immigrants, eventually leading to the federal Chinese Exclusion Act of 1892 (repealed in 1943); and settlement and development in various communities, including San Francisco's Chinatown, which remains the largest Chinatown in the United States.
The materials presented in The Chinese in California are only a small part of the wealth of historical and archival materials documenting this topic at participating institutions. Users should note the source of the materials found on this site and contact the holding libraries or archives for further information.

Repository Information

The Bancroft Library, The University of California, Berkeley

The Bancroft Library is the primary special collections library at the University of California, Berkeley. One of the largest and most heavily used libraries of manuscripts, rare books, and unique materials in the United States, Bancroft supports major research and instructional activities and plays a leading role in the development of the University's research collections. The Bancroft Library's holdings include more than 500,000 volumes, 50,000,000 manuscript items (some 35,000 linear feet), 2,800,000 photographs and other pictorial materials, 43, 000 microforms, and 23,000 maps.
The Bancroft Collection, the Library's largest resource, documents the history of North America from western plains states to the Pacific Coast and from Panama to Alaska from the late eighteenth century onward. The collection was initially assembled by Hubert Howe Bancroft, who settled in San Francisco during the gold rush era, becoming a bookstore owner and publisher. Beginning in the 1860s he gathered materials for his vast publication project of a series of histories of western North American, in the end numbering 39 volumes. Within a decade he had amassed 16,000 volumes. Purchased by The University of California, Berkeley in 1905, the collection documents, through primary and secondary resources, the economic, political, social, and cultural history of this vast region. The greatest emphasis in the collection is on California and Mexico, with the history of most other Western American states collected up to 1900, except such broad, overlapping issues as water and the environment, which are collected without regard to date. Also represented are early Pacific voyages of exploration and discovery; continental expansion west of the Mississippi, including the Louisiana Purchase, fur trade, overland journeys to the West; Hawaii and the Philippines, British Columbia and the Yukon.
Some of the topical strengths include materials relating to Spanish/ Mexican California, the California Gold Rush and the settlement that followed, urban and rural development, particularly in northern California, the environmental movement in the American West, and local, state, and national political figures. The Bancroft Collection richly documents nineteenth and early twentieth century Chinese immigration to California and the West. Included in the collection is much that reflects the social life, culture, and commerce of these immigrants as well as the varying responses of other communities and individuals to the Chinese. The primary source materials include photographs, original art, cartoons and other illustrations; letters, diaries, business records, and legal documents; as well as pamphlets, broadsides, speeches, sheet music, and other printed matter.

The Ethnic Studies Library, The University of California, Berkeley

The Ethnic Studies Library contains one of the most comprehensive and unique Asian American Studies Collections in the United States, including materials on the cultural, political, and socio-economic life of Asian Americans and Chinese Overseas. Aside from developing a core collection on the identified Asian American groups--Asian Indian, Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean and Southeast Asian American (Cambodian, Lao, Lao Hmong, Lao Mien, Thai and Vietnamese Americans), the Asian American Collections also contain the largest Chinese American archival collection in the world.
Chinese American Archives contains manuscripts, diaries, correspondence, newsletters and other primary source materials, including the largest collection of biographies on prominent people in different fields and active community members. This is the most extensive collection of its kind. The collection also contains newspapers collections in Chinese and English dating from 1880 to the present; an extensive slide collection on Chinese American history; hundreds of photographs on historic events; and a numerous historical posters by Asian American artists announcing community events. There are over hundred unique archival collections including the collection of Dr. Margaret Chung, the first Chinese American Woman Physician (1916) and the documents of the Chinese Empire Reform Association (it also called Baohuang Hui) on the political activities of Chinese Overseas, pa house. Also included are The Chinese Historical Society of America Collections, The Ray Jones Collection (Jones was a fervent Chinese anarchist in the United States), and University of California at Berkeley Alumni Collection, including collections from Mr. Yuk Ow, Mr. Him Mark Lai, and Professor Judy Yung.

California Historical Society, San Francisco

The California Historical Society (CHS) was founded in 1871, and designated by the state legislature in 1973 as the official historical society of California. Its mission is to engage the public's interest and participation in collecting, preserving, and presenting art, artifacts, and written materials relevant to the history of California and to support historical research, publication, and educational activities. The Society's holdings include research collections of library, archival and photography materials, as well as a fine arts collection with more than 5000 works of art that document the history of California in both the 19th and 20th centuries. Plans for the library were developed after the Society reorganized in 1922, and C. Templeton Crocker (1884-1948), eager to find a permanent home for his sizable collection of Californiana, placed it on permanent loan to the Society in 1923. Now owned by CHS, the library's collections today are built upon the strengths of Crocker's collection.
Housed in the North Baker Research Library at the Society's headquarters in San Francisco, the Society's research collections of primary and secondary resources include over 35,000 volumes of books and pamphlets, more than 4,000 manuscript collections, and some 500,000 photographs documenting California's social, cultural, economic, and political history and development, along with a large collection of maps, ephemera, posters, broadsides, periodicals, and newspapers relating to the history of California and the West from the early explorations to the present time.
The library's collection of rare books is notable for its 17th, 18th, and 19th century volumes on early explorations of the West and the Pacific, and many early books relating to the Mission period and the Gold Rush in California. Its manuscript collections include diaries of overland travelers as well as trips to California around the Horn and over the Isthmus of Panama. Its photography collections represent unique holding of many of California's most prestigious photographers, including Carleton Watkins, Eadweard Muybridge and Arnold Genthe. Of particular note among the many images that document the social, political, and cultural evolution of California are Genthe's street scenes of the San Francisco Chinese community in the late 1800s. The Library is also home to the Kemble Collections on Western Printing and Publishing, one of the most complete collections of materials documenting printing and publishing in the western United States, consisting of more than 4,000 books, extensive pamphlet and ephemeral materials, photographs, periodicals and manuscript material. The research collections at CHS include many sources reflecting the social life, culture, and commerce of Chinese immigrants as well as the varying responses of other communities and individuals to the Chinese.

Chinese and Westward Expansion

Scope and Content Note

While the west coast of North America was known to the Chinese, in particular those working as sailors, before the Gold Rush, our story begins in 1850, as the documentation from the Gold Rush provides the starting point with which to build a more substantial narrative. Most Chinese immigrants entered California through the port of San Francisco. From San Francisco and other ports, many sought their fortunes in other parts of California. The Chinese formed part of the diverse gathering of peoples from throughout the world who contributed to the economic and population explosion that characterized the early history of the state of California. The Chinese who emigrated to the United States at this time were part of a larger exodus from southeast China searching for better economic opportunities and fleeing a situation of political corruption and decline. Most immigrants came from the Pearl River Delta in Guangdong (Canton) Province.
Chinese immigrants proved to be productive and resourceful contributors to a multitude of industries and businesses. The initial group of Chinese argonauts sought their livelihood in the gold mines, calling California Gam Saan or Gold Mountain. For the mining industry, they built many of the flumes and roads, allowing for easier access and processing of the minerals being extracted. Chinese immigrants faced discrimination immediately upon arrival in California. In mining, they were forced to work older claims, or to work for others. In the 1850s, the United States Constitution reserved the right of naturalization for white immigrants to this country. Thus, Chinese immigrants lived at the whim of local governments with some allowed to become naturalized citizens, but most not. Without this right, it was difficult to pursue livelihoods. For example, Chinese immigrants were unable to own land or file mining claims. Also in the 1850s, the California legislature passed a law taxing all foreign miners. Although stated in general terms, it was enforced chiefly against the Mexicans and the Chinese through 1870. This discrimination occurred in spite of the fact that the Chinese often contributed the crucial labor necessary to the mining enterprise.
Discriminatory legislation forced many Chinese out of the gold fields and into low-paying, menial, and often arduous jobs. In many cases, they took on the most dangerous and least desirable components of work available. They worked on reclaiming marshes in the Central Valley so that the land could become agriculturally productive. They built the stone bridges and fences, constructed roads, and excavated storage areas for the wine industry in Napa and Sonoma counties. The most impressive construction feat of Chinese Americans was their work on the western section of the transcontinental railroad. Chinese- American workers laid much of the tracks for the Central Pacific Railroad through the foothills and over the high Sierra Nevada, much of which involved hazardous work with explosives to tunnel through the hills. Their speed, dexterity, and outright perseverance, often in brutally cold temperatures and heavy snow through two record breaking winters, is a testimony to their outstanding achievements and contributions to opening up the West.
Materials in this section are drawn from the collections of The Bancroft Library and the California Historical Society.

San Francisco's Chinatown - Architectural Space

Scope and Content Note

San Francisco's Chinatown grew organically around Portsmouth Plaza, the city's first public square and civic center. With the wealthy residential neighborhood of Nob Hill to the south and the financial district to the north and east, Chinatown was centrally located on valuable real estate, a fact that contributed to many efforts to relocate the community or eradicate it all together. However, the community remained at its original site, continuing to expand its borders in all directions.
"Old" Chinatown, the enclave before 1906, was the subject of extensive political debate for city politicians and officials who often deemed the area an eyesore and a health hazard. True, its wooden buildings and tenement houses were far from aesthetically pleasing - as photographs and artwork from the period attest - but they were ironically a reflection of the rapid growth San Francisco underwent during and shortly after the Gold Rush of 1849-50. Structures were built at an astonishing rate, the buildings of Chinatown among them. And as was the case with explosive urban development, many ethnic denizens were left with the out-of-date residential and business areas that more privileged residents left behind.
After the fire that followed the 1906 earthquake reduced Chinatown to smoldering ashes, there was a movement by the Reconstruction Committee to move the Chinese to the outer reaches of the Richmond District, far away from its prime location at the heart of the city. In a concerted effort to save their community from being uprooted, Chinese leaders convinced municipal leaders and the neighborhood's white landlords that the "New" Chinatown should be rebuilt in a distinctive oriental style that would attract more tourism and business, thereby boosting San Francisco's economy as whole. The results were the familiar curved eaves, colorful street lanterns, recessed balconies, and gilded facades that are instantly associated with Chinatown. Most importantly, the enclave was rebuilt at its original locale.
Materials in this section are drawn from the collections of The Bancroft Library, the Ethnic Studies Library, and the California Historical Society.

San Francisco's Chinatown - Community

Scope and Content Note

Chinatown was a tight-knit community whose residents were familiar with one another. Parents allowed their children, who were highly cherished (especially since there were so few of them due to the early lack of women and families), to roam the streets without supervision during the day. The sense that all of Chinatown was a children's playground was deftly captured by the photographer Arnold Genthe, who considered Chinese children some of his favorite subjects.
However, the day was not filled only by play. Chinese culture considers education one of life's most important assets and Chinatown's children were schooled in a wide array of subjects. Their textbooks cover not only the traditional areas of mathematics, grammar, and social studies, but Russian literature and Confucian philosophy, among other topics. Instructors included Chinese scholars and teachers as well as Protestant missionaries who sought to convert the Chinese to Christianity through educational assimilation.
Being segregated from the rest of San Francisco did not mean that Chinatown was isolated from the rest of the world. There was a constant stream of communication with mainland China and other parts of the United States. Separated families and friends wrote to each other on a consistent basis, and their letters relate the difficulty of loved ones spending a great deal of time apart. Chinese-language newspapers provided another means of communication, keeping people informed of happenings in California and around the globe. A number of dailies competed for the Chinese reading public, but the Chung Sai Yat Po was the oldest and most prominent. One of its editors, Ng Poon Chew, who ran the paper during the early 1900s, was known as "The Chinese Mark Twain." Ng was a celebrated orator, and spoke on the famed Chatauqua, New York, public speaking circuit.
The use of print media was not restricted to newspapers. Theaters printed daily programs of their nightly offerings, with photographs accompanying descriptions of plays and actors. The Chinese of San Francisco had a passion for the theater. Local players as well as stars from China performed for packed houses with audiences consisting of both Chinese and adventurous outsiders. Other cultural activities included literary societies, poetry clubs, and art collectives, many of which published or exhibited their collective works.
Materials in this section are drawn from the collections of The Bancroft Library, the Ethnic Studies Library, and the California Historical Society.
