In the 1920s, the Chinese Mission on E Street had two front rooms used for religious services and the rest of the building housed rooms for single Chinese young men. In addition to the Baptist Mission, the Congregational Church also had a Chinese Mission. All of these pains to educate the Chinese community in American religion and domestic practices were part of larger Americanization efforts toward immigrants within Fresno in the early twentieth century. These charming Chinese Boy Scouts: Edwin Lee, right; Richard Mock; George Wong, and Allen Lew, left, speak to the success of those movements.
