[ AzTeC / SWA SASIG ] :

Those interested in Asian culture should note the
Phoenix Asian Chamber of Commerce (ACC) web site.

The website presents a brief link discussing the
Poston Detainment Center. Many young men
joined the military service while interred at
Poston to fight in World War II. 

Baseball was important at the camp. The sport was
an highly integrative activity of which
anthropologists interested in acculturaltion might
take heed. Pat Morita will be coming to Phoenix to
speak about baseball in the camps. Those interested
in hearing his presentation can contact the Chamber
for more information.
