“This collection of photographs from the Hearst Collection of the Los Angeles Examiner in the USC Regional History Collection, documents the relocation of Japanese Americans in California during World War II. These 222 photographs provide a glimpse into the lives of Japanese immigrants and native-born Japanese Americans (a.k.a. Nisei) residing in California from 1921 to 1958, with primary emphasis on 1941–1946. Much of the coverage documents scenes of: a) the relocation process; b) life in camps at Manzanar, Santa Anita, Tanforan, and Tule Lake; c) post-war repatriation to Japan. The original captions from the photographs, many of which were published in the Los Angeles Examiner, have been transcribed into the Japanese American Relocation Digital Archive to enhance subject-specific retrieval; the cultural references reflect the 1940’s terminology.”
