Description: These pages from the 1945 Guilford College yearbook, The Quaker, show Japanese American students who attended the school during World War II. Guilford College was one of the few schools who welcomed Japanese Americans during WWII. Students include: Hank Aikawa, Mari Eijima, Fukiko Takano, and Eddie Hirabayashi. The students are depicted in class photos, club/sports pictures, and candid shots. Also included is an advertisement for a Chinese-American restaurant, which may show an effort to accommodate Asian students.
