The War Relocation Authority (WRA) was created on March 18, 1942, by Executive Order of the President, No. 9102. This new civilian agency was to be responsible for "the relocation (of evacuees) in appropriate places, providing for their needs in such manner as may be appropriate, and supervising their activities." The collection consists of reports, memoranda, news clippings, news digests, statistics, and other documents issued by the War Relocation Authority leading up to, during, and following the period of Japanese American incarceration.
