An issue of "Community analysis report" published by War Relocation Authority. Titled: dealing with Japanese Americans. It was issued to WRA staff on interacting with Japanese Americans based on descriptions and explanations of "race and culture" and "behavior patterns as found among Issei and some others in relocation centers." The section on "behavior patterns," includes explanations of Japanese customs including the "Go-Between," the perceived tendency towards group responsibility and the "Project Head's position." A section on "Evacuee attitudes" highlights employment issues, incarceree insecurities, and food issues.
The Japanese American Relocation Collection is composed of ephemera related to the relocation program during World War II. Items include the official government report of Manzanar Relocation Center, a photo album, post-war activism materials related to preserving and remembering the camps, various clippings, and documents. The strength of this collection is found in its many perspectives on the controversial relocation program and how it has been presented since World War II.
