Stanley and Amy Gee

Country of origin: China

[Stanley Gee] came to this country from Hong Kong in 1938 when he was eighteen in search of a better life. His family was very poor because his father had been incapacitated by a stroke. When he came to this country, he was interned at the Angel Island Immigration Station due to laws restricting Chinese immigration. He was interrogated and spent ten days there before he was released.


[Amy Gee] was born in Shanghai and immigrated in 1949 after the war to escape the Communists.
