DescriptionPeg Campbell presents an overview of Chinese and Japanese immigration into the United States from a 1930 point of view. She highlights America's need for both of these pools of labor but notes that once the number of immigrants exceeded the labor need, prejudice and discriminatory legislation were the result. This is an interesting depiction of Chinese and Japanese in American society and enterprise as of 1930, as well as the Exclusionary Act of 1924 and particularly anti-Japanese sentiment in 1930.
