Question: Chinese laborers

From: "Stephen Kneeshaw"

I would like to put together some materials on "ordinary people" in American history and include Chinese laborers on the CPRR as one of the groups. I would like to use this information in an American history survey course that I teach at College of the Ozarks. Might you be able to direct me to information on specific individuals – as opposed to the entire group – including names, biographical sketches, and so forth? Thanks.
