Eugene shared some of the resource materials he found. Another purpose of the trip was to photograph roadside Chinese restaurant signs, and of course to sample from many Chinese and other restaurants along the way. All enjoyed hearing the stories from this educational and fun tour!
Eugene has been involved with public history and historic preservation for many years. He has served on the boards of the Chinese Historical Society of Southern California (CHSSC), the Friends of CAM, the Los Angeles Lodge of CACA, the Historical Society of Long Beach, and other organizations.
