Periodicals, Articles and Newspaper Clippings

Anti-Japanese sentiments surfaced in many spheres and Japanese Americans on the West Coast were confronted with confusion, fear, and hysteria. This would persist throughout the war and its immediate aftermath. However, many individuals and organizations took the opposite view, advocating and working for the rights as well as the well-being of a displaced people. The tenor of the times is reflected in the collection of newspaper clippings and articles.

The collection contains an assortment of newspaper clippings and reprints of periodical articles. The majority of clippings are from the Los Angeles Times and the rest from other West Coast publications, including San Francisco Chronicle, Santa Barbara Star News-Press, Pasadena Star News, Sacramento Bee, San Diego Union, and others.

The collection also contains a small number of original copies of popular magazines of the day, including The American Legion Magazine, The American Magazine, Coronet, Collier's, Country Gentleman, The Intercollegian, The Commonweal, and The Wellesley Magazine. All have articles related to the Japanese American internment.
