For our first installment of our Lunch and Learn series, we are unveiling an exhibit made by volunteers. Board member and genealogist Alice Kane will take us through the NARA archives to learn more about this relatively unknown painter. Joining us, his two daughters, Cynthia Lee Johnson, and Carol Mon Lee.

Mong Q. Lee was an immigrant from China in the 1930's, likely coming via the paper son route. He spent a great deal of time in immigration, before moving to Fitchburg, where he became a laundryman. He went on to serve in China during WWII, where he met his wife.

When they came back to Boston, he attended college, had two girls, and his painting career took off. Mong Q. Lee passed in 1959, at the age of 37. He is buried at Mt. Hope.

Your ticket purchase will help us create more programming like this, and support our mission of documenting, preserving, and promoting the history of Chinese immigration in New England.

Join us in a discussion with visual artist Wen-hao Tien, CHSNE Managing Director Brianna AllenShauna Lo, Assistant Director of the Institute for Asian American Studies at UMass Boston, and Eugenio Menegon, Associate Professor of History at Boston University as we explore the little-known histories of Chinese laundries in Boston Chinatown.

For first-wave Chinese immigrants in the mid-1800’s, laundries became a primary source of income and a significant part of Chinese American labor history. They remain a point of shared connection between many Chinese American families today.

How have these histories impacted Boston Chinatown, and what are the implications for current generations? During the discussion, we will be examining Tien’s piece, Laundry Rock, one of the works included in her culminating exhibition as Pao Arts Center’s 2020 Artist-in-Residence. The exhibit Wen-hao Tien: Home on Our Backs, is on view at Pao Arts Center's website until June 26, 2021.

CHSNE Tunney F. Lee Memorial Lecture Series

In memory of 2002 Sojourner Award recipient and our longtime friend and collaborator Professor Tunney Fee Lee (李燦輝, 1931-2020), CHSNE has established the CHSNE Tunney F. Lee Memorial Lecture Series to continue his lifelong work of preserving and promoting the history of Chinese Americans. The series will feature speakers on various topics related to the history of Chinese Americans and lectures/seminars will be held in locations in the Boston area and/or virtually based on speaker availability and health regulation at the time. Tunney himself has kindly given many interesting talks on the history of Chinese and Chinatown in Boston over the years so we see this as a fitting tribute to his legacy of historical preservation.

September 26th, 2:00 PM EST

  • The inaugural seminar - Stories From the City: Contemporary Senior Migrants and Boston's Chinatown 
Over the past several decades, increasing numbers of Chinese-born senior citizens have left China to migrate to the U.S. for the first time as older adults. For many of these seniors, their recent moves are tied to long histories of emigrant pathways from Guangdong Province to the U.S.—echoing similar kinds of influences that affected Tunney Lee to come to Boston in 1938 when he was 7 years old.
In this talk, I take inspiration from Tunney Lee’s belief that to understand a city, it’s necessary to know stories about the people who live there: Who are they? What are their lives like? What’s brought them there? I focus on stories I heard while doing 7 years of ethnographic research among seniors who hail from Guangdong Province and have relocated in their 60s and 70s to Boston, where they work in restaurants, as caregivers for children or infirm adults, as janitors and hotel cleaners, and, in a handful of cases, as administrative help in Boston Chinatown offices. Through these stories, I trace the historical pathways that have led to seniors’ later-life migration trajectories and explore the continuities and changes that have animated some typical Chinese immigrant experiences to the U.S. over the past 100+ years.

Tunney F. Lee Memorial Lecture Series

Tunney Lee recognized at the 40th Annual Preservation Awards
In memory of 2002 Sojourner Award recipient and our longtime friend and collaborator Professor Tunney Fee Lee (李燦輝, 1931-2020), CHSNE has established the CHSNE Tunney F. Lee Memorial Lecture series to continue his lifelong work of preserving and promoting the history of Chinese Americans. The series will feature speakers on various topics related to the history of Chinese Americans and lectures/seminars will be held in locations in the Boston area and/or virtually based on speaker availability and health regulation at the time. Tunney himself has kindly given many interesting talks on the history of Chinese and Chinatown in Boston over the years so we see this as a fitting tribute to his legacy of historical preservation.
A giant in the field of urban planning and architecture, Tunney was the head of the Department of Urban Studies and Planning (DUSP) at MIT, founding head of the Department of Architecture at Chinese University in Hong Kong and Chief of Planning and Design at the Boston Redevelopment Authority. The history of Chinese in Boston was close to his heart as his great grandfather arrived in Boston in 1892 and he himself arrived in Boston in 1938 at the age of 7. In recent years, Tunney led the multimedia Boston Chinatown Atlas project in partnership with CHSNE and many others which documented the development and changes of the neighborhood over the years. At the time of his death, Tunney was working on a book about Boston Chinatown and today CHSNE director and Tunney’s collaborator David Chang continues to work on the extensive collection of files, photos and writings left by Tunney with the objective to complete and publish his unfinished work.

轉換成豐盛,以春暖花開的心情迎戰。

曾經和失智的父親最熟悉,卻變得最陌生。蔡怡陪在父親身邊五年
