An issue titled as: A Nisei requests expatriation. The document analyzes the expatriation form signed by a young man, some time after the flood of requests for repatriations and expatriations had subsided. The young man states in his letter how he wants to come back to Japan, to be with his family and due to the impossibility to find his scope in the US. The collection contains material used by Carey McWilliams in writing the book, Prejudice: Japanese Americans, symbol of racial intolerance (Little, Brown, 1944). It includes U.S. War Relocation Authority records, confidential reports, bibliographies, clippings and compilations of articles, legal papers, correspondence between McWilliams and Japanese American evacuees, relocation camp newspapers and other publications, two copies of his book, and five copies of the 1994 videocassette (40 min.), Something Strong Within.
