The First Chinese-Americans (?)

Who were the first American Saussys? What brought them here?
Haun Saussy's article explains it all.

Haun is my son. He teaches comparative literature and Asian languages at Yale.

Haun's article ran recently in Ex/Change, a publication of the Centre for Cross-Cultural Studies at City University of Hong Kong.
