Scope & Content Tri-State High School diploma of Amiko Katherine Nekoda (Amy), dated 1943. Dark blue cardboard cover with gold lettering on the front.

Donor notes: Amy's diploma from the concentration camp high school in Tule Lake - Newell, CA. She was in the concentration camp when she graduated. Tule Lake and Newell are very close together and there was discussion at one point what the name of the camp would be. This is why the diploma says Newell and not Tule Lake.
