Description of camp social structures including “Caucasian-Japanese relations” highlighting tension and hostility by three groups that most directly involve Japanese Americans and the incarceration: The War Relocation Authority (WRA), the US Army and the American public. Using case-studies, the manuscript examines these relationships and discusses the circumstances of incarceration contributing to differences in social status among incarcerees. Report compiled as a portion of the Japanese American Evacuation and Resettlement Study (JERS).
The Robert Billigmeier collection is comprised of materials collected during his work and stay at the Tule Lake incarceration camp conducting research for the University of California’s Japanese Evacuation and Resettlement Study (JERS). The collection includes: photographs taken during his time at Tule Lake; a scrapbook created by students at Tule Lake in 1942; camp publications; reports and manuscripts; and student writings. Several of the reports and manuscripts draw from the personality cards written by students in the Tule Lake incarceration camp.
