This paper will attempt to study popular American images of the Chinese immigrant to the United States through the writings of the leading American authors of the late Nineteenth Century. A brief look at Chinese immigration to the United States, Chinese lifestyles in the United States, and the resulting Chinese problem serve as background material for the study.
