Description: These pages from the 1946 Guilford College yearbook, The Quaker, show Japanese American students who attended the school and highlight their involvement in student activities and campus life. Two students in particular, Fukiko Takano and Eddie Hirabayashi, are found in many student organizations and candid photos. These photographs and descriptions help to show the growing acceptance of Japanese American students at Guilford, as it was one of the few schools in the country to enroll these students during World War II.
