Graduation program, Rohwer High School

Graduation program, Rohwer High School

Usage conditions apply
Formal education was offered at the relocation camps. Each camp acted as an individual school district. Instructors were either non-Japanese professionals brought into the camps from the outside or qualified residents. Although camps offered education programs, they suffered from lack of appropriate supplies like textbooks and typewriters.
Mrs. Mabel Rose Vogel was an art teacher in Rohwer camp, and retained many of her student's art projects. Many were donated to the Smithsonian for its exhibit, but a roomful remained in her apartment.
