About this Event

Night Out With (NOW) series features opportunities to hear cultural stories from community leaders. An evening filled with history and delicious food inspired by the presentation.

The early Chinese settlers came to Tucson seeking opportunities and a way to support the families they left in China. This presentation will introduce the history and important people of Tucson’s Chinese community from the 1870s to the 1960s. It will also place the community in an international and national context. An introduction to the Lee Family, (Lung Sing, Lee Ho & Jerry Lee), the merchants that operated the largest market in Barrio Libre, will be woven through the presentation.

Presented by Sandy Chan, retired Faculty Librarian at Pima Community College. Ms. Chan was the former President of the Arizona State Genealogical Society and was the lead on the Tucson Chinese history lab in collaboration with the Arizona Historical Society’s Library & Archive. She is the author of the article “The Incredible Life of Ah One: Tucson’s Chinese Sailor”, published in the Journal of Arizona History.
