Photographs related to the life and work of Japanese American author Yoshiko Uchida, including photographs of family and friends,
as well as photographs related to her career as a writer. Some images are of Tanforan, Heart Mountain and Topaz Japanese relocation
centers as well as Smith College.
Yoshiko Uchida was born in Alameda, California in 1921, the second daughter of Takashi ("Dwight") and Iku Umegaki Uchida.
Dwight Uchida immigrated to the United States from Japan in 1903 and worked for the San Francisco offices of Mitsui and Company,
where he eventually became a manager. Iku Umegaki, the eldest daughter of a prefectural governor of Japan, immigrated to the
U.S. in 1916 to marry Dwight Uchida. Both were graduates of Doshisha University, one of the early Christian universities of
Japan, and were early and active members of the Sycamore Congregational Church in El Cerrito, Calif.
