TERRELL LIBRARY ATRIUM
Join special guest Patti Hirahara for a preview of photos from the George and Frank Hirahara Collection, the largest private collection of photos taken at a World War II internment camp for Japanese-Americans in the United States. Patti Hirahara is donating the historic collection of photographs taken by her father and grandfather at Heart Mountain, Wyoming, to WSU Libraries’ Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections (MASC). The more than 2,000 images in the collection depict camp life and special family milestones such as engagement celebrations, weddings, and family portraits.
