The Chinese of the Eastern States

I've transcribed and posted to my webpage much documentation related to the 19th controversy over Carroll Wright's reference to French Canadians as the Chinese of the Eastern States.

C. Mel Surette

Fr. C. Melvin Surette of the Archdiocese of Boston was removed from ministry in 1995 because of charges of inappropriate conduct with young men. He was then given a job in the chancery, where his job was to find jobs for other priests who had been accused, including Fr. Ron Paquin--he was kind of the fox guarding the henhouse, you might say. This ended in 2000. Surette, living in the Peabody area, keeps busy these days writing for Acadian and French Canadian genealogy newsletters, and speaking at conferences on this topic. I met him at the Congres Mondial Acadien in 2004. The link above will take you to a Google search.
