dc.description.abstract In this paper we combine family history and archaeology to present the life and times of California pioneer Yee Ah Tye. Not quite a '49er, Yee arrived in San Francisco from southern China in about 1852 and became an agent for the Sze Yup District Association, a role that he would continue in Sacramento and La Porte until his death in 1896. Archaeological excavations of Chinese district association houses in Sacramento and at the site of a Chinese gold miners' camp in Sierra County provide insights into Yee's role as association official, merchant, and middleman representing the interests of his community for over 40 years. en
