Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The collection consists of reel-to-reel and cassette tape recordings of oral histories. Digitization of the tapes is an ongoing project, with recordings being added to the Center's Internet Archive page on a regular basis. Oral histories are listed here alphabetically by last name; some recordings include more than one person or groups of people.
The Issei Oral History Project was conducted under the authority of the Board of Governors of the Issei Oral History Project Inc. and the Rev. Heihachiro Takarabe between 1969 and 1979. The recordings consist of personal interviews of Issei (first generation) Japanese immigrants who lived in Sacramento and other areas of Northern California. Interviews are in Japanese.
