Join us for an exclusive Stanford outing to historic Angel Island. From 1910 to 1940, Angel Island was the site of an Immigration Station that functioned as the West Coast equivalent of Ellis Island, although the Angel Island facility also enforced policies designed to exclude, rather than welcome, many Pacific Coast immigrants. Our guided tour will include a visit to the historic hospital building currently undergoing renovation and not open to the public until 2018.
We’ll be joined by Katherine Toy ’91, MA ’95, the current president of the Board of Directors of the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation, and past presidents Buck Gee ’72, Kathy Ko Chin ’80 and Howard Ting, MBA ’98 for a thought-provoking discussion on the lessons and legacy of Angel Island in today’s contemporary immigration climate.
We will take a tour of the site and have our discussion over lunch. (Remember to pack a lunch!) We aim to finish in time for participants to take the 1:55 p.m. ferry back to S.F. or the 2:20 p.m. back to Tiburon. For those who wish to enjoy more time on the island, both ferry companies offer later returns. Please consult the ferry schedules.
