    Scope and Content of Collection

    The album contains 190 black and white photographs documenting the wartime experiences of one Japanese soldier during his service in Manchuria in the 1930s. Included are scenes of barracks life, life in the field, portraits of friends and fellow soldiers, and a few images of local landscape and people. During this period, Manchuria was known as Manchoukuo (Manzhouguo) a nominally independent puppet state set up by the Japanese which existed from 1931 to 1945. The Japanese installed Puyi, the last emperor of the Qing Dynasty, as the emperor of Manzhouguo and declared the country independent from China on February 18, 1932.
    Related monographs and serials pertaining to Manchuria during this period have been cataloged separately and can be searched on Pegasus, the UCSB Libraries online catalog.
