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

Japan of "disloyals" following the War. The Cook Collection also contains a
small body of materials pertaining to Centers other than Tule Lake (see
