Artifacts showcasing Chinese American history donated to Beijing museum

Dozens of artifacts reflecting Chinese American history were donated to the Overseas Chinese Museum of China in Beijing recently.

The artifacts include old photos, posters, newspaper clippings and postcards from the late 19th century, showing the daily life of Chinese workers and scenes of Chinatown in San Francisco.

The artifacts were donated by Anita Lee, wife of the late mayor of San Francisco Edwin Lee (1952-2017), and several Chinese American collectors.

Lee was the first Chinese descent mayor of the city.
