Refereed article that "explores the links between race, health, and nation through the making of D'Arcy Island, Canada's first and only Chinese leper colony. Located in Haro Strait, off the coast of Vancouver Island, D'Arcy Island was established in 1891 and was operative until 1924. During this period, 49 men - mostly Chinese - were exiled to the Island. Banished indefinitely, the men spent their days waiting to be deported from Canada or to die, whichever came first." The paper is also available as a Rich Text Format (RTF) document.
