Kam Wah Chung
PRODUCED, WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY BETH HARRINGTON
The discovery of gold brought thousands of Chinese to eastern Oregon in the late 1880s — including herbal doctor Ing Hay and businessman Lung On. Together they practiced medicine and operated a general store, Kam Wah Chung & Co., near the town of John Day, and became highly regarded members of the community. Meet people who remember these two men and visit the recently restored building — a historic treasure filled with thousands of different herbs and artifacts. Produced for the OPB series Oregon Experience.
