Pacific Rim Archive

About this Collection

The Pacific Rim Archive (PRIM) brings together archival materials relating to America's first century of involvement in and impressions of East Asia (broadly interpreted as including activities from the 1840s through the 1940s). Trading relations predate this period, but not at the level that began to develop with the United States' active settlement of its Pacific shores. And, on the other hand, the level of American involvement in East Asia following the defeat of Japan, and particularly the outbreak of the Korean War was on a much different level than this first century of the "Pacific Rim."
