Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains one box of photographs, letters, flyers, postcards, booklets, newspaper clippings, newspapers, and notes related to Jimmy Fukuhara, the Fukuhara family, and the Manzanar incarceration camp.
Jimmy Fukuhara was born September 21, 1921, in Los Angeles, California to Ume and Ichisuke Fukuhara. In 1942, Jimmy, his brother Henry, and the rest of his family were removed from their home and sent to the Manzanar incarceration camp in Independence, California. Jimmy was able to leave the camp early but was drafted into the army shortly after. When he returned home from the war, he moved back to Santa Monica to work at the nursery his family operated until he retired in 1986.
