Early Images of Filipinos in America - External Collections
This virtual exhibit is offered to researchers as a guide to photo sources on Filipinos in America.
Some listings point to collections with more photos, while others have a single example.
My goal is to showcase pre-1950 photographs, which may otherwise lay undiscovered.
This is a work in progress, suggestions are welcome.  Send to:  eloisa -omit-this-spam-guard- @ucla.edu
