The Japanese American Evacuation and Resettlement: A Digital Archive – The Bancroft Library – UC Berkeley Library

From the University of California’s Bancroft

Library, with financial support from the National

Parks 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.
