Contributions of Asian Migrant Workers in the 19th Century to Development of the British Columbian Mining Industry

During my first summer internship at UBC, I worked for Professor John Meech and wrote a research paper on the impact of Asian migrant workers to the BC mining industry. After a lot of research in the archives, in Chinatown, and at the library – I learnt a lot and it really helped me appreciate the current state of the mining industry. My favorite section is on how Mining helped BC become a province (chapter 9). Enjoy!
