"The French Quarter Chinatown 
紐奧良市法區唐人街."
Speaker:  Winston Ho
   
In 1873, Fou Lou Company, the first Chinese business in New Orleans, and one of the first Chinese-American businesses in the South, opened its doors in the French Quarter on Chartres Street near Conti Street. For the next one hundred years, a handful of Chinese stores, restaurants, and laundries maintained a continuous presence in the Quarter, and by the 1940s, a small Chinatown had developed between the 300 and 600 blocks of Bourbon Street, until the Chinese abandoned the Quarter and migrated to the suburbs in the 1970s and 1980s.
 
Winston Ho 何嶸 is a graduate student in the Department of History at the University of New Orleans, with a degree in history and Chinese language from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey and specializing in early twentieth-century China and Chinese-American history in New Orleans. Mr. Ho is the son of Taiwanese parents and a native of New Orleans.
