Chinese history in Arizona

Mary Parker and Laurie-Sue Rhetts visit with M. Cheak Yee
We have the most interesting guest speakers at our Historical League meetings. January brought us M. Cheak Yee with stories, anecdotes, magazines and photos of China and the settling of Chinese in Arizona. Government regulations, politics and people played an important role. A copy of Tastes & Treasures cookbook was given to Mr. Yee after his presentation.

Looking forward to Win Holden, publisher of Arizona Highways, to be guest speaker in February.
