“Lost and Found” at the Japanese Canadian National Museum

The Japanese Canadian National Museum has opened an exhibition of photographs called “Lost and Found.” They hope that visitors to the exhibition will recognize people or landmarks in the photographs and contribute this knowledge by leaving a note on pages posted for this purpose beside the photographs.  To learn more about the exhibition and for location and hours, click here.

This is a challenge in many archival and museum collections, and the Chung Collection is no exception- for example, try searching for portraits of Chinese men or women and you’ll see that we lack identifying information for many of them. If you recognize someone or have other information to share, you can always leave a comment in the Digital Collection version of the photograph.
