The Mississippi Delta Chinese Heritage Museum

Click here to see images from the collection.

 

Against the backdrop of a rapidly disappearing society and culture, the museum promotes local heritage preservation by actively collecting oral histories, memorabilia, photographs and textile materials related to the history and story of the Mississippi Delta Chinese immigration and settlement. The resources developed from on-going preservation projects will encourage an environment of understanding and appreciation of our ethnic and cultural diversity.
The Mississippi Delta Chinese Heritage Museum opened October 2012 and is free and open to the public.
A complete index of materials currently held in the collection is coming soon. Researchers are encouraged to contact the University Archives staff for appointments to view collections.
If you are interested in contributing to the collection by donating family materials or by financially supporting the mission of the museum, please contact University Archivist, Emily Jones (ejones@deltastate.edu) or by calling 662-846-4781.

MS Delta Chinese Heritage Museum Collections

Museum Collections are arranged by alphabetically by the donor’s last name.  Please review the list below for those collections which have been processed and are now available for review in the University Archives & Museum’s Reading Room.

MS Delta Chinese Heritage Museum Oral Histories

The University Archives & Museum has been collecting oral history interviews since the late 1990′s.  Our collections continue to grow thanks in large part to oral history grants awarded by the Mississippi Humanities Council.  We are eager to collect other oral histories.  If you would like to participate in an oral history interview, please contact the University Archives via e-mail (archives@deltastate.edu) or by calling 662.846.4780.

 

Oral Histories are arranged alphabetically by the interviewee.
