“While I was growing up, this secretary was in the corner of my parents’ dining room, and my father used it as his home office. With six people crowded into a small ranch house, it was the only available space. I have the secretary now and it is in the corner of my dining room, which I have chosen as my work space because it is open and airy, with great window views of the neighborhood. The secretary reminds me every day of my father, who went to the Philippines with the U.S. army after World War II, and passed along his interest in the islands to me.” — Theresa Kaminski
