Article, "Intolerance-American vintage" from Third Recon Group coverage, vol. 1, no. 9 (June 23, 1945) describes Japanese American soldiers fighting during WWII in Italy to "prove their loyalty to the United States" and their brilliant service records compared to hate crimes against the Japanese American community occurring on the west coast. Describes the pardoning of three soldiers in Auburn, California, who destroyed the property of Japanese-American Sumio Doi according to defense attorney argument "this is a white man's country." Article condemns violence and racism against the Japanese American community and states, "Intolerance has no place in America.. Out country's future lies in the souls of these peoples of many creeds and races."
The War Relocation Authority (WRA), together with the Wartime Civil Control Administration (WCCA), the Civil Affairs Division (CAD) and the Office of the Commanding General (OFG) of the Western Defense Command (WDC) operated together to segregate and house some 110,000 men women and children from 1942 to 1945. The collection contains documents and photographs relating to the establishment and administrative workings of the (WDC), the (WRA) and the (WCCA) for the year 1942.
