Between 1903 and 1905, the first wave of Korean immigrants arrived in Hawaii, forming the beginning of the Korean diaspora in the United States.  Although they numbered only about 7,500, their movement had profound implications for American and Japanese policy toward Korea at the end of the Choson dynasty. Based upon the research that resulted in his book, The Korean Frontier in America: Immigration to Hawaii, 1896-1910, Dr. Wayne Patterson presents how Asian history and Asian American history are interconnected rather than separate fields of inquiry.
