Asian-Pacific Heritage Month Photo Essay: The Tomiyasu Family by Nancy Hardy

By Su Kim Chung on April 29, 2016 10:10 AM | Permalink

As part of UNLV Libraries’ observance of Asian, Pacific Islander & Middle Eastern Heritage Month, we’re sharing—and celebrating—an incredible life story documented in our Tomiyasu Photograph Collection. Yonema “Bill” Tomiyasu is notable in early Las Vegas history for the 160-acre ranch he operated near what is now Pecos and Warm Springs Road. The Tomiyasu Farm provided a surprising array of luscious produce for Las Vegas and even the remotest areas in Southern Nevada, as well as for workers at the Boulder Dam construction site.  By Nancy Hardy, Outreach and Reference Assistant, UNLV Libraries Special Collections.
