In Collections...

I was so excited when I found out that upon starting my internship here at the Japanese American National Museum, I would have access to my grandma’s collections!  In this picture, you can see the two volumes of Xeroxed copies of her diary when she was in camp to the bottom left, followed to the right is a small collection of donated pictures that you have to wear clean gloves to examine, and to the very right is the Crusaders scrapbook, all precious historical items!
