Poster, "Lets Relocate to Illinois

Description
This poster, made by Yoshio Makamura, was a school project in camp. "The second semester each student decided on the town in which he wished to resettle, and we set up a community survey of this locality and state. Using a Russell Sage publication, "Your Community" by Joanna Colcord, they sent for materials (writing model letters), did primary and secondary research, and wrote a term paper in college manuscript form summing up their results. At a recent reunion, there was amusement as alumni recounted that they had arrived at their chose resettlement destinations knowing more than the natives."-Eleanor Gerard Sekerak, a Teacher at Topaz
