City of Boston, “Imagine All the People: Vietnamese in Boston”

New Bostonians Series, 2016. From the report: “The first significant wave of Vietnamese immigrants to the United States came in 1975 following the end of the Vietnam War and the collapse of the government of South Vietnam. The vast majority of Vietnamese who came to the United States in the years that followed came as refugees fleeing persecution and political oppression. Many who had worked for the U.S. government or were otherwise associated with the U.S. involvement in the war were evacuated by the military.”
