— A UALR professor has received a $25,000 grant from the Darragh Foundation for the conservation and stabilization of the War Relocation Center cemetery in Rohwer.

Johanna Miller Lewis, associate dean of graduate studies and professor of history, accepted the grant and said the money will be used primarily for architect's fees and educational programming.

This is the second grant UALR has received for the Rohwer cemetery project. In 2011, graduate student Tamisha Cheatham secured a $250,000 grant from the National Park Service for the restoration of the internment camp cemetery. Those funds were allocated to restore the cemetery's historic structures, including monuments and headstones.

The Rohwer Internment Camp operated from September 1942 through November 1945 to relocate Japanese-Americans from the west coast during World War II.
