Nakamura, George Photograph Album

Collection Number: MC324

Photograph album kept by student George Nakamura showing him and his friends during what is presumed to be his senior year of high school. The first few images show several posed group portraits of young Asian-American men taken in front of the high school building, some of them wearing athletic letters. There are many photos of individuals, and though the photos are uncaptioned, some of them are inscribed to George by the subject. One series of photos seems to depict graduation day, with students in gowns and family portraits. One image of a group of young women shows them outside the Hotel Berry, leading us to identify the location of these photos as Sacramento. Farther back in the album is a series of larger, formal graduation portraits, most of them inscribed and taken in cap-and-gown. [Description provided by McBride Rare Books]
