FROM CAMP TO CAMPUS

Nina Hamilton (left) and Mari Sabusawa (right) as students at Antioch College, c. 1945. Mari entered Antioch in 1942 through the Student Relocation Council, a national relief organization that helped more than 4,000 nisei students out of internment camps by enrolling them in colleges and universities outside the security zone established on the west coast during World War II. She graduated in 1945 and in 1955 she married the novelist James Michener. Photo by Axel Bahnsen, courtesy of Antioch College.
