About This Page

Thanks for taking our virtual tour!

This page was created by AP US History and Knight School classes at Menlo School in Atherton, California. The text and movies on the site are all original student work supported by independent research. Most photographs and all audio and video footage were produced by students during field trips to Angel Island.

It is my hope that this site will be used by other classes around the country who are interested in Chinese American history and immigration history in general and who are unable to experience Angel Island for themselves.

If you have used any part of this page in support of your own academic work, be sure to properly cite this page. Here is the proper citation in the MLA format:

I would like to give a special thanks to the docents and volunteer staff at Angel Island who make this project possible through their time and work they did with us. Please consider giving financial support to this amazing piece of living American history.

Please e-mail me with any questions, comments, or suggestions--we love hearing that our work has helped you!
