Notes from Sarah Carlson, in discussion with McKenna: “First Phil. passport I used when I immigrated to the US in 1977. It reminded me of the months of overtime work in order to afford, prepare and complete all documents needed to come to the US. Without any relatives to support me in the US, I had to make sure I had enough to support myself the first few months in the new land until I got a job. The process, even though difficult, is worth remembering.”
