San Diego Chinese Historical Museum Proudly Presents: Ah Quin
Life, Leadership and Legacy
San Diego Chinese Histotical Society Museum Produly Presesent: Ah Quin: Life, Leadership and Legacy
Experience a rags to riches tale like no other in this exhibit that follows Ah Quin from a missionary school in Guangzhou; through menial servitude in San Francisco, Santa Barbara, and a coal mining camp in Alaska; to the red light district of San Diego where he ascended to the role of Chinatown’s honorary mayor and left an indelible impact on the fledgling city. Presented exactly 100 years after his untimely death, this collection of never-before-seen artifacts generously donated by Jeanie Ming and other Ah Quin descendants captures the indomitable spirit of early Chinese Americans whose struggle for economic survival produced a unique transnational culture. Join the museum in celebrating one of San Diego’s lesser-known founding fathers on the very block where he raised his twelve children in the heart of the Chinatown he helped create.
