Bill Michael directed the Eastern California Museum, a nearly century-old regional history museum in Independence. This recording preserves his recollections of that work. Included are discussions about Shi Nomura, a Japanese American confined at Manzanar War Relocation Center who, in the 1970s, created the first local exhibit to deal with that place's past, and the exhibit itself and the Manzanar Advisory Commission, a body which advised the National Park Service on the establishment of the Manzanar National Historic Site on which Michael served.
