The Takano Family Papers contain materials from members of the Takano Family in Los Angeles, California, including Issei immigrants, Itsuhei and Tomoyo Takano and Kumaji and Tsuruno Meguro, and their Nisei children, Fumio Fred and Yoneko Takano. The papers cover from prewar through post-war, including the period of the forced evacuation and incarceration during the war and the redress movement in 1980s. The papers consist of correspondence, photographs, camp newspapers, yearbooks and other documents. Noted are photographs depicting the Japanese American community in Colorado in 1930s, including photos of Japanese Young People’s Christian members and schoolchildren and staff of a Japanese school and public schools. There are also documents regarding a real property in Los Angeles, California, which Fumio Fred Takano purchased in 1938, and his legal documents and letters present his efforts to protect the property during the war with the support of his non-Japanese American friend. Included are also letters depicting his struggles to grant the indefinite leave permit from the Gila River incarceration camp, Arizona, as a consequence of his answers to “loyalty questions, no. 27 and 28.” In addition, the Issei parents’ letters describe their experiences, detailing about the convoy from the Pomona Assembly Center to the Heart Mountain incarceration, Wyoming, incarceration life, and returning to California after the war.
