Sam Mihara was a guest lecturer at both the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum and Saginaw Valley State University this week.  During his two-day visit, Mihara gave 4 lectures and visited SVSU classes. Sam and 120,000 other Japanese-Americans were forcibly removed from their homes on the West Coast in 1943 and relocated to internment camps in remote locations in the United States.  Mihara and his family were relocated to Heart Mountain Relocation Center in Wyoming.  Mihara’s lectures engaged hundreds of guests of all ages about his experiences at Heart Mountain.  His visit was part of a lecture series for the  Manzanar: The Wartime Photographs of Ansel Adams exhibition which runs through August 29.
