Hidden Histories: Oxy and Japanese American Incarceration
by Thea Wilson ('24)

Gallery, 2nd floor of the Library

Since October 2023, Occidental College senior Thea Wilson has been reprocessing and rehousing the College's Japanese American Relocation Collection (JARC) through an internship with Special Collections & College Archives (SCCA). This internship was made possible through the generous funding of the Grace Nixon Foundation. Through her work, Thea has facilitated preservation and future access of these important materials.

Thea will present about her reprocessing work and share some of the stories she unearthed through the process. This presentation will be accompanied by an exhibit at the Library titled Hidden Histories: Oxy and Japanese American Incarceration. In this exhibit, you can see some of the materials that Thea worked with throughout her internship.
