Asian Americans in Education

I'm trying to find some rather specific demographic information about Asian-Americans in the 1950s and 1960s and I'm not having much luck. Perhaps you could offer some assistance?

I'm doing some research about how US immigration policies affected Asian-American's educational experiences over a 60 year time span. I have a wealth of data from more recent time periods, but I'm having a hard time trying to find any information from the 1950s or 1960s.
The information I'm specifically looking for are things like how many Asian Americans were enrolled in higher education institutions, how many college-aged (18-24) Asian-Americans were living in the US, how many had a college degree, etc. I'm also just trying to find rather basic demographic information like a breakdown of the Asian-American population by gender and by income level.
I've pored over Census & NCES data for days, but it's been only marginally helpful. Could you point me in the direction of some helpful resources?
