History
DONOR RELATES THAT THIS PEN HOLDER WAS MADE AT SLOCAN CITY BY AN UNKNOWN JAPANESE CANADIAN AND WAS GIVEN TO HER FAMILY AS A GIFT WHILE AT SLOCAN. THE NAKAYAMA FAMILY WAS ORIGINALLY FROM VANCOUVER BUT MOVED TO COALDALE FOLLOWING THE SECOND WORLD WAR WHEN THEY WERE INTERNED AT SLOCAN CITY IN THE INTERIOR OF BRITISH COLUMBIA BY THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT. THE DONOR'S FATHER, REV. CANON G.G. NAKAYAMA, WAS AN ANGLICAN MINISTER IN VANCOUVER, AND THEN ESTABLISHED THE CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION IN COALDALE IN 1945 WHERE HE SERVED UNTIL 1970. WOOD SCULPTURES ARE MENTIONED IN DONOR'S NOVEL "OBASAN". SEE RECORD P19970041001 FOR EXPANDED BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION AND PERMANENT FILE FOR FURTHER HISTORY.

MUSEUM OBTAINED ITEMS FROM LETHBRIDGE EATON'S STORE IN 1999.
