Albums: Guam

Oct 03 2020

I have been writing state albums, but it has always been my desire to include all American citizens, regardless of their state, commonwealth, or minor outlying territory status. This, the first of my Albums: Guam. (Calling these Albums bereft of American or state status is awkward; calling them “Holdings” albums seems worse. I think no modifier seems the kindest of the possibilities, given the diversity of opinions on the matter of status.)
