Cook (Guy and Marguerite) Nisei Collection

Owning Institution: University of the Pacific

About this Collection

This collection contains materials collected by the Cooks during their employment at Tule Lake. Much of the collection focuses on education, although there are also materials of a more general and of a more specifically personal nature. Of particular interest are faculty narratives describing the problems of teaching in a relocation center and student autobiographies chronicling their adjustment to relocation. The collection also contains substantial clippings and report files that document the segregation of "disloyal" Japanese-Americans at Tule Lake, the uprising of 1943, and the repatriation to Japan of "disloyals" following the War. The Cook Collection also contains a small body of materials pertaining to Centers other than Tule Lake (see Index).... View collection guide.
