It is now a home in an upper middle class neighborhood of Queens in New York. But it was originally the office of the first Chinese American newspaper ever published in English, according to a blog published by a professor at CUNY.
The Chinese American Times, or CAT as it was called, was founded and edited by William Yukon Chang. The Chinese American from Hawaii graduated from St. John’s University in Shanghai and earned his masters from New York University.
He began publishing CAT in 1955. He published his newspaper from a growing middle class Chinese American neighborhood, Forest Hills.
Chang did practically everything himself–everything from writing and editing the content to publishing the paper and folding it before sending to subscribers. Chang kept the independent paper going until the early 1970’s.
