The Spirit of California Imprisoned: Summoning the Mission Inn II

Session Chair: 
David Arnold, "University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point"
Session 4: Friday 3:45-5:15pm
RCC Ballroom B


  1. Theresa Hanley, Mission Inn Foundation and Museum
    The Mission Inn Foundation and Museum is a community-based non-profit organization that provides public exhibitions and educational programs exploring the history and significance of the Mission Inn. The Foundation's current Board of Trustees President shares her perspectives as a museum curator for the Foundation (in the 1980s) and as a volunteer and Board member.
  2. James Lu, California Baptist University
    While the Mission Inn looms triumphantly over downtown Riverside, Chinatown languishes unnoticed and largely deserted. The sharp contrast of these two tales of a city belies their complex dialogue. Nestled within the same setting, Chinatown and the Mission Inn at times overlap and interact, together offering a polyphonic, dynamic discourse.
