NEW YORK, NEW YORK, April 3, 2001: Oxford University Press is working on an important book entitled: "Buddhists, Hindus, And Sikhs in America," one in a critically acclaimed series of 17 volumes on Religion in American Life. It will be a history book designed as a young adult library book reference. The editors are needing to get photos from the "early days" of the Indian/Hindu immigration to America, pre-1980. The subject matter of the photos would be Hindus in America involved in religious activities, weddings, temple events. Photos that "tell a story" will be most useful, for example a ground breaking of the Ganesha temple in New York, a baby receiving a samskara with a priest, etc. This will be an important book. If you would care to collaborate, have such photos in a family album and would be willing to share them, please contact Oxford University's picture clerk, Jennifer Smith, at "source" above. They need these right away!
