My 84 and a half year old friend (and former JA internee), Kiku, called last night to talk to me about my use of the word "internment camp" instead of "concentration camp" in my lecture at the library. I can see the argument either way, but have yet to be totally convinced to the use of concentration camp. Anyone up to swaying me either direction?
The library display I curated of Japanese American resources at the Olin Library, Mills College, is up now. I need to go by one more time to fuss with the signage, but by in large, I am happy with what I pulled together with the help of librarian Nancy McKay.
