Between 1910 and 1940 hundreds of thousands of immigrants from China Japan and other Pacific nations were processed through the Angel Island Immigration Station in the San Francisco Bay. Due to exclusionary laws their experiences were very different from those encountered at Ellis Island. Russell Nauman operations manager of the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation will discuss the history of the site conditions at the facility and stories of former detainees.
