Description
A letter from Michi Weglyn to Frank Chin in which she mentions fundraising in an incarceration camp for the Girl Scouts. She also discusses trying to get Deborah Lim to go public with her report about the collaboration between the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) and the U. S. government during World War II. The unflattering report was commissioned by JACL in 1989 but was only partially released immediately after its completion.
These materials are from box 73 and 74 of the Frank Chin Papers. The Frank Chin Papers contain personal and professional correspondence between Frank Chin and Michi Weglyn relating to particular projects on which either author was working as well as files related to the Day of Remembrance Tribute to Michi Weglyn.
