Immigrants have built Astoria

An interesting editorial appearing in today's The Daily Astorian recounts the waves of immigrants that helped to build Astoria, an important Oregon town at the mouth of the Columbia River. The author recalls the wave of "immigrants" from an earlier version of the United States that followed the establishment of Fort Astoria in 1811, followed by waves of Chinese, Scandinavians and now Hispanics.
