The Atsushi Art Ishida Collection is comprised of photographs, negatives, camp newspapers, WRA documents, memorabilia, and correspondence chronicling his time immediately after the exclusion order and during his incarceration in the Santa Anita Assembly Center in California, the Jerome camp in Arkansas, the Tule Lake camp in California, and the Minidoka camp in Idaho, as well as digital reproductions of photographs documenting his life in Japan and Artesia, California during the pre-war years and his time during the Korean War. The majority of the photographs in the collection were taken by Atsushi Art Ishida and he would often develop them in his room in the barracks where he had constructed a makeshift dark room in the camp.
