Yen Ngoc Do
Yen Ngoc Do: Founder and publisher of the Nguoi Viet Daily News, the longest-running Vietnamese newspaper in the country, Do used his journalism experience to help his countrymen start a new life in America. Twenty-five years ago, he began writing and publishing a four-page weekly leaflet in his native language. It featured such how-to’s as applying for a driver’s license, and essentially taught newcomers about complexities nonexistent in Vietnam. He died on Aug. 17. He was 65 years old.
