Scope and Content of Collection

Photograph album, containing about 170 black/white snapshots and a few postcard views, of the Japanese period in Saipan, 1914-1944. Includes a number of shots of the local Saipan population and scenery, but most of the photos are of Japanese adults and children, families, groups, leisure activities, sports (including several shots of baseball teams), boy scouts, geishas, and the extensive sugar cane industry. Typewritten labels in English and stamps on some of the photos, stating "Examined in the field. Joint Intelligence," seem to indicate that he album was acquired by an American G.I. during the latter part of World War II, after American forces took over Saipan in July 1944.
