Background
The Heart Mountain incarceration camp opened August 12, 1942, in Cody, Wyoming, six months after President Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066. In October that same year, The Heart Mountain Sentinel published its first weekly tabloid. The newspaper focused on camp life and included official announcements, events, news from other camps, and additional information. The Heart Mountain Sentinel ran until July 28, 1945, after it was announced in July 1945 that the Heart Mountain incarceration camp would close November 15, 1945.
