Profile
Dr. Wayne Patterson, specialist on Korean History, is a professor in St. Norbert College (De Pere, Wisconsin). Among his numerous publications is The Koreans in Hawaii: A pictorial History, 1903-2003 (Honolulu: University of Hawaii Press, 2003), written with Roberta W.S. Chang. His talk should be of particular interest to Filipinos as it provides an insight into the relationship between Korean and Japanese immigrants in Hawaii immediately preceding the arrival of Filipinos sugar planters in the 1920's.
