Improvements - Streets and Sidewalks - Mayor Thompson Letter Regarding Illegal Use of Chinese Labor on Street Improvements

This document is in regards to violations of public contracts where Chinese laborers were employed. As an historical resource, this item reflects the prejudices of the era in which it was created and includes language that is offensive. The use of this language is not condoned by The City of Portland Archives and Records Center, but we are committed to providing access to this material as evidence of the inequalities and attitudes of the time.
