The Chinese at the 1909 A-Y-P Exposition   
I created this blog in 2009 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition in Seattle, Washington. The blog is about the Chinese workers and promoters of AYPE, the visiting dignitaries and their families, the local and out-of-town Chinese who attended the fair, China Day and its parade and dragon, the Chinese acrobats, the Chinese Village, and many of the Chinese who were a part of the AYPE. If you have an ancestor who attended the fair, or if you have stories, artifacts or photos you would like to share, it would be fun to hear from you at
Although the blog is no longer active, I will keep it on the internet since it has information about the Chinese in Seattle in 1909.
