Taeko Joanne (Ono) Iritani
     Professor Heidi Kim, Assistant Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill recently wrote to us to report a very large and successful public event, which featured Taeko Joanne (Ono) Iritani, (Poston 19-9-C ), was held to open an exhibit created by Professor Heidi Kim's Spring 2012 English 88 seminar students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  
      Each student wrote an essay around a particular historical document from the World War II documents from the Sally Lucas Jean Collection in the southern Historical Location of the University's Wilson Library.  The papers focuses on the health care at Poston, using documents from Sally Lucas Jean, a Health Education Consultant to the Poston camp for 1.5 years.  Professor Kim reported that her papers provided " valuable insight into the public health issues and hazards of an overcrowded camp, as well as the daily life and experience of incarcerees and government workers there."
