Additional contributor:

Description: These pages from the 1948 Guilford College yearbook, The Quaker, reflect the relationship between the school and Asian American and American Indian students. Included are photos of Japanese American students Mari Eijima and Chizu Alice Watanabe, as well as American Indian student Eleanor Lennie Corneilson, and from Hawaii (at this time still a U.S. Territory), Anne Isonaga. An advertisement for a local Chinese American restaurant might indicate the desire to serve the growing diversity among students.
