    • Abstract:
      This article presents information on Angel Island in San Francisco Bay, California. It explains that from 1910 to 1940 Angel Island served as a primary port of entry for people arriving from Russia, Japan, China and India. After a three-year renovation, the landmark has just reopened with a new museum, the U.S. Immigration Station at Angel Island, as its focal point. Previously off-limits to the public, the dorm-style barracks for detainees have been filled as they once were, with metal bunk beds, worn leather satchels, and games such as mah-jongg.
