Frank Visits Manzanar

A while back, Frank's grandson had to write a term-paper about Japanese Americans. So, Frank would bring him to the Japanese American National Museum's Hirasaki National Resource Center. While his grandson studied, Frank would roam the museum's exhibitions and halls. He was eventually approached and asked to become a volunteer or better yet, a docent.

Frank agreed to help in the Archives department, with his friend Harry Honda. The two used to run a newspaper together before the war.

After being at the museum for awhile, Frank became a docent, and has been a wonderful docent ever since. His tours are heartfelt and passionate, and he does a very good job retelling the stories of the incarcerated Japanese Americans.
