Description This collection contains materials relating to the activities of Project Ngoc
(1987-1997), a non-profit humanitarian group consisting mainly of college
students. Materials from Project Ngoc include correspondence, records of
meetings and activities, and photographs and slides documenting travel to
refugee camps and statewide activities. Materials from various organizations
involved with refugee issues include correspondence, bills, and other printed
ephemera. The collection also contains artwork done by refugee artists in the
Hong Kong camps.
Background Project Ngoc (PN), a non-profit humanitarian organization comprised mainly of
college students, strove to publicize and gather support for Southeast Asian
refugees. Originally initiated as a class at UCI by graduate student Tom Wilson,
PN was an attempt to increase the awareness of the students concerning the
Vietnamese refugee crisis. Students in the class then decided to help alleviate
the tragedies of the refugees by taking the Project beyond the limitations of the
classroom and forming an organization in the hopes of realizing more concrete
projects to assist the refugees.
Extent 8.0 Linear feet (11 boxes and 9 oversize folders) and 148 digitized images
