Sowing Dreams, Cultivating Lives: Nikkei Farmers in Pre-World War II Orange County
Item No.: 150754


gift wrap?: 

From the exhibition of the same name curated by Stephanie George and designed by Carlota Haider at Fullerton Arboretum's Orange County Agricultural and Nikkei Heritage Museum (2007).

The exhibition catalog tells the story of the Japanese who journeyed across the Pacific with hopes of finding greater opportunities in the United States, especially in farming. As Japanese Americans, they established a number of diverse religious, social, and cultural organizations that helped them develop a sense of community and ethnic identity in Southern California. With the advent of World War II, however, mass incarceration disrupted Japanese American families and communities that had shaped Orange County over the previous decades. Paper: 147 pp.
