Lecture, Reception & Exhibition of APA History in the South
Meet the new 2011-2012 APA Historical Society Board

John Jung author of "Southern Fried Rice" discusses how he discovered that he and his father immigrated to the U.S. South as "Paper Sons" as many Chinese did as a result of the Chinese Exclusion Era and about his journey from psychologist to historian Jung will be presenting a case study which describes some of the factors and processes by which as a retired Professor of Psychology, he searched for the history of his parents’ immigration to the United States in the 1920s. Jung’s discoveries led to further questions and more findings about the history of Chinese all over the U. S. and to the publication of four books. Jung’s talk will share some of the many rewarding experiences, often quite unexpected, that this endeavor has produced not only for him, but for many others as well.
