Find Bios for Asian-Pacific Americans

May is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month. Find biographical information about dozens of prominent Asian Americans using Biography In Context, a database available through the Holman Library.

From the Holman Library homepage, click on "Databases by Name". From the alphabetical list, click on "Biography in Context", and sign in with your Green River CC student ID number for database access.

On the Biography in Context homepage, click on "Browse People".

Then, from the Choose a Category drop-down menu, select "Asian and Pacific Americans".

The resulting list includes biographical information on APA actors, artists, politicians, journalists, writers, etc., such as:
  • Bobby Jindal
  • Mindy Kaling
  • Maxine Hong Kingston
  • Bruce Lee
  • Maya Lin
  • Anna Sui
  • George Takei
Ask a librarian for more help using the Biography In Context database!
