The Atsushi Ishida Collection is comprised of photographs, negatives, camp newspapers, WRA documents, ephemera, and correspondence, chronicling his time immediately after/during his incarceration in the Jerome camp, Arkansas, and the Tule Lake segregation camp, California. The majority of the photographs in the collection were taken by Atsushi Ishida and he would often develop them in his room in the barracks where he had constructed a makeshift dark room. The photographs depict the life in the incarceration camps, capturing the buildings, such as barracks, a hospital, and guard towers, the workers for farming, laundry, mess hall, and logging, and sports games in which the incarcerees participated. Noted are the photographs capturing the farewell scenes in which the incarcerees were being transferred from the Jerome camp to the Tule Lake segregation camp.
