This collection comprises materials accumulated during Walsh's involvement with the Overseas Refugee Program for Southeast
Asian refugees in the Philippines and Thailand, and also materials that he collected regarding the education and resettlement
of Southeast Asians in the United States. The collection consists of video cassettes; conference schedules; curricula, resource
catalogs, reference books, and workbooks for ESL education programs; newspaper clippings; reports and studies; and serial
publications. Cultural orientation materials-- such as handbooks, guides, and manuals-- for refugees and their sponsors and
service providers are also included. Items in this collection are predominately written in English, though a few items are
written in Southeast Asian languages.
Robert Walsh formerly was curriculum director for the Philippine Refugee Processing Center, which was part of the Overseas
Refugee Program, and later continued in the education field in the San Diego area.
