AABANY would like to share Theodore K. Cheng’s article “Auction, Artifacts, and George Takei: How ADR Helped Preserve a Part of Japanese-American History,” published in the NYSBA Arts, Sports and Entertainment Law Journal.
Theodore K. Cheng is the President of our sister affiliate APALA-NJ and current ADR Sub-Committee Chair of AABANY’s Litigation Committee, as well as a former board member of AABANY.
Here’s a brief synopsis of his article:
Entitled, "Auction, Artifacts, and George Takei: How ADR Helped Preserve a Part of Japanese-American History,” it recounts the successful story of how treasured artifacts from Japanese-American internment camps were saved from being generally disseminated to the public through the intervention of various interest groups and, ultimately, George Takei, who brokered a deal with the Japanese American National Museum. Along the way, Theo mentions the Heart Mount War Relocation Center and AABANY’s re-enactment (see, in particular, endnote 4).
