Summary: Oral History of Bui Van Chuc, who is known by the name of Quyen Di, born in Hanoi, Vietnam in 1948. He migrated with his family to Saigon in 1954 and recalls his education in Vietnam in great detail. Quyen Di became a teacher at Da Lat University and also taught 12th grade in Saigon after he finished his education in Vietnam. He met his wife, who was also a teacher at the same school. They left Vietnam in 1977 as boat refugees and passed through refugee camps in Malaysia and Hong Kong. After arriving in Alaska and then resettled to New Orleans, he decided to move to Orange County, California where he has lived since. He worked in several jobs, including publishing Vietnamese-language publications but has returned to his role as an educator.
