San Joaquin Valley Japanese Americans in WWII

About this Collection

This digitized collection documenting the history of Japanese Americans who were sent to incarceration camps during World War II brings together the Success through Perseverance collection from the Fresno County Public Library and the JACL-CCDC Japanese American Oral History collection, TOMO Foundation and Japanese Americans in World War II collections from the Special Collections Research Center at California State University, Fresno. The digitized collection contains oral histories, newsletters and photographs.

This digital collaborative project was made possible by a grant from the California Civil Liberties Public Education Program (CCLPEP) in 2008-2009 as funded by the state legislature and administered by the California State Library. CCLPEP also funded the taping of nine additional oral histories through a previous 2004-2005 grant.

The original Success through Perseverance project was funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities in 1979-1980 and was directed by Yoshino Hasegawa and Keith Boettcher.
