East Meets West: Asians in Texas

An important population in Texas, Asian Americans from South and South East Asia, Central Asia and the Pacific Islands continue to contribute their talents and traditions into the unfolding of the Lone Star State’s history. In recognition of our State’s new status as home to the Nation’s third-largest Asian population, and in honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, TSHA has packaged a bundle of historical articles, biographies and related resources highlighting the accomplishments and struggles of Asian Texans from the 1870’s to the present day. In this document you will find select Handbook of Texas biographies about two influential Asian women in Texas History and four entries about the Chinese, Japanese, Koreans and Vietnamese in Texas.
