Scope and content

This collection consists of one small photo binder containing 56 photos measuring about 5 x 3.5 inches. There are also several loose photos that are roughly 6.5 x 4.5 inches as well as 8.5 x 5 inch photos.

A few photos show U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy visiting the ABCC Hijiyama facility. Other photos depict reunions or gatherings of former members of the ABCC and RERF. Most of the individuals are not identified.
