History of Sacramento Bocho Doshi Kai, formerly Yamaguchi Kenjinkai, a Japanese American organization comprised mostly of store owners and farmers. Founded circa 1925 to connect this community, act as a contact point, and exchange information between the Japanese immigrants and their homeland. Forced to dissolve when World War II broke out, Bocho Doshi Kai was the first to reorganize in Sacramento in the Spring of 1946. The organization continues today. Collection consists of drafts and notes for narratives on Asian Americans, photographs, exhibit items, artifacts, publications, and audio and visual material accumulated by Wayne H. Maeda, instructor and founding member of Asian American Studies at Sacramento State.
