Administrative/Biographical History Element

"This project was carried out between February and June of 2007. Kathleen Carlin conducted interviews in English and accompanied Cam Tran, who interviewed folk specialists in Vietnamese. Kathleen also participated in community preschool celebrations of Tet (but was prevented by illness from attending the celebrations at the chruch and temple or the community fair). Mark Sindler photographed these interviews as well as...dragon dances at businesses and the community fair on the Mary Queen of Vietnam church grounds."
