The Naohara Family Papers consist of photo albums and scrapbooks compiled by George N. Naohara and Mitzi Masukawa Naohara, and other documents pertaining to the Naohara family. Contained are photographs, correspondence, and documents depicting their experiences during World War II. George N. Naohara is a Kibei Nisei, and his experiences include his farm labor in Idaho and Utah, incarceration in the Manzanar, Jerome, and Tule Lake camps, and U.S. Army language school training and the Korean War. Mitzi Masukawa Naohara was a preschool teacher at the Poston camp, Arizona, and also a member of a young Nisei women's club, "Sigma Debs.” Her collected materials depict her life as a teacher and social events in the Poston camp during the war. Noted are the documents and correspondence to George N. Naohara issued by War Relocation Authority and Selective Service System during the war, including notices responding to George N. Naohara’s answers to the "loyalty questionnaire." The documents in Box 5 originally belonged to Donald Teruo Hata and Nadine Ishitani Hata Asian Pacific Studies Collection.
