The collection, composed of 101 color photographs, includes accompanying text and three examples of textiles. Photograph sizes range from 7 x 10" to 13 x 20". The photographs represent a composite of project work with the Hmong, Mien, Khmer, Khmu, Lao and Vietnamese people in Northern California. Additionally, 320 slides from the original photographs by Eric Crystal have been converted to digital images on CDROM and depict Indochinese immigrants in California. The slides are housed along with conference materials in the University Library’s Multimedia Center [CDROM 1225].
