We last featured this remarkable digital archive in the 1-26-2018 Scout Report, and it continues to be an excellent resource for anyone wishing to learn about this period of history and the people it affected.
From the University of California's Bancroft Library, with financial support from the National Park Service, comes this powerful digital archive dedicated to the experiences of Japanese-Americans who were incarcerated in internment camps during World War II. This collection features almost 150,000 documents, including papers, photographs, maps, and personal archives from the Bancroft Library. These documents have been digitized by Calisphere and the Online Archive of California. The collection includes the personal papers of writer Yoshiko Uchida (Invisible Thread; Picture Bride), who was interned at camps in California and Utah; the papers of California attorney general Robert Walker Kenney; and a collection of recorded interviews with individuals who spent time in internment camps (available in the multimedia section). In addition to viewing this collection through Calisphere and the Online Archive of California, visitors can explore this collection by internment camp via an interactive map.
