Deeply Honored: Two Heroes of the 442nd

December 7, 2022

Fred Hagstrom

Rae Schupack Nathan Professor of Art, Carleton College (MN)

A presentation about the incarceration of people of Japanese descent during World War II.  It is based on two artist’s books: “Deeply Honored” and “Returning Home”. It covers the student relocation project, an initiative that allowed some students of college age to leave camp for their education, as well as the loyalty of Nisei who left camp to volunteer  for military service.

Fred Hagstrom has recently moved to New Mexico after a career teaching at Carleton College in Minnesota.  His books and prints are held in numerous public collections, including the Library of Congress.  He has spoken on the topic of the incarceration at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, the Wing Luke Museum in Seattle, and the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, near Seattle.

This talk is being presented in conjunction with the Smithsonian traveling exhibit, Righting a Wrong: Japanese Americans and World War II, which is currently on display at the New Mexico History Museum thru December 31st, 2022.
