Biography

East West, an English/Chinese bilingual newspaper, was founded in 1967 by publisher/editor, Gordon Lew, in San Francisco's Chinatown. Weekly publications began in 1968 and continued to the last issue on September 7, 1989. The news focus was on political, social, cultural, and community issues on local, national, and international levels that affected the welfare of Asian Americans and other ethnic groups. The philosophy was to build bridges of communication between segments of the community such as Chinese-speaking with English-speaking, Cantonese with non-Cantonese, new immigrants with longtime residents, seniors with youths, as well as between the Chinese American community and the American society at large.
