Ellis Island lies in N.Y. Harbor directly across from Manhattan. Its history begins in Colonial times when it was owned first by the Dutch, then the Brit., and finally a private citizen named Samuel Ellis. Eventually, it was given to the federal govít., which used it as an immigration station. Between 1892 and 1954, Germans, French, Irish, Italians, Greeks, Poles, Austro-Hungarians, Russians, Chinese, Eastern European Jews, and others -- more than 16 million foreigners -- passed through its doors on their way to becoming Amer. citizens. In Nov. 1954 the station was closed. In 1965, Ellis Island was made part of the Statue of Liberty Nat. Monument. Restored to the way it looked at the height of its glory, it now houses an immigration museum. Illus. Reinforced binding.
