The collection contains general meeting minutes, correspondence, program information, photographs and scrapbooks developed
by the Ikebana International Sacramento Chapter.
Ikebana is the Japanese study and practice of flower arrangement in order to create a closer bond with nature. In 1956, Ellen
Gordon Allen established Ikebana International (I.I.) headquarters in Tokyo, Japan. Her vision for I.I. was to be a cultural,
non-profit, and non-governmental organization that would spread the art form of Ikebana throughout the world. By the late
1950s, I.I. had chapters in cities as far as London to South Africa.
