Y.C. Hong: Advocate for Chinese-American Inclusion
The Huntington Library opens an exhibit on You Chung Hong, a key figure in the history of Chinese Americans.
Drawn from The Huntington’s You Chung Hong family papers, acquired in 2006, this exhibition is the first opportunity for the public to get a deeper sense of the life of an extraordinary figure in Chinese-American history. Through some 75 items, including historical documents, correspondence, photographs, maps, and ledgers, “Y.C. Hong: Advocate for Chinese-American Inclusion” examines Chinese-American immigration in early 20th-century Los Angeles. The name Y.C. Hong (1898–1977) still elicits respect and pride among longtime residents of Los Angeles’ Chinatown. As one of the first Chinese-Americans to pass the California Bar, Hong was a major figure in the Los Angeles Chinese community during the period of the Chinese Exclusion Act and beyond.
