Description
At a concert benefitting the Topaz Museum by SF Symphony trumpeter Mark Inouye, held on Sunday, July 10, at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Supervisor Aaron Peskin told the story of how a phone conversation persuaded a Mormon landowner to sell his land, so that the Topaz War Relocation Center Site in Utah could be preserved. The man never would have sold to the Japanese American community. "After 1993 when three houses were built on the northeast corner of the Topaz site, the Topaz Museum Board knew it was imperative to buy as much of the land as possible to stave off further development. The Board acquired 415 acres thanks to the considerable effort of Aaron Peskin and Nancy Shanahan from San Francisco." — The Topaz Times, June 2002 https://www.topazmuseum.org/resources/newsletter-archive
