Personal accounts of individuals who were placed into internment camps following the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and accounts of people who assisted in the relocation of Japanese American students from the camps to colleges and universities around the country.
This extensive Japanese American Oral History Project (JAOHP) was launched in 1972 at the urging of a then CSUF undergraduate history major, Betty E. Mitson. Interviews were done with two categories of "analysts"—novelists (Georgia Day Robertson and George Nakagawa) and social scientists (Togo Tanaka, Robert Spencer, and James Sakoda).
Digital interview recordings of Japanese Americans relating to immigration to the United States from Japan, internment of Japanese Americans during World War II, and the postwar Japanese American community. Interviews conducted by Kaoru Ueda. Includes images of diaries, newsletters and other textual material.
Five volumes collecting 20 years of research by the California State University Fullerton Oral History Program. Part one comprises in-depth interviews with persons of Japanese ancestry, both resident aliens (Issei) and US citizens (Nisei), interned in centers operated by the Army, the Department of Justice, the Immigration and Naturalization Service, the Wartime Civil Control Administration, and the War Relocation Authority.
