Remembering the Puyallup Assembly Center: “Camp Harmony”
This local event remembered and honored those who were forced to live on the Puyallup fairgrounds from April to September, 1942, before moving on to one of the permanent camps.
A DVD is now available which documented this event from the registration tables through the staged program to the "Harmony" re-dedication and ending at the fair museum. Integrating the video by Ray Woodhouse and still photographs by Jennifer Sato Greenfield and Kurt Tokita, you can view this historic remembrance.
