Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

The Japanese Club, which included both high school and college students, was mentored by Anita Shepardson, a math instructor at both schools from 1913 to 1945. During a time when Japanese and Japanese Americans were sometimes faced with anti-Japanese sentiments and segregation, Miss Shepardson strove to promote cultural understanding and friendship between students. When Shepardson passed away in 1945, her family presented her Japanese doll collection to the Library. The dolls are currently displayed on the first floor of the library.
