Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Consists chiefly of a 1981-1982 revision of her Tule Lake field notes, written for the Japanese American Evacuation and Resettlement Study in 1944-1945, while Wax was at the Relocation Center near Newell, Calif. The revision, funded by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation, includes a first and final draft, plus interviews conducted in 1981-1982 with former internees at Tule Lake, and longitudinal oral histories (Wax's term) created from the field notes and interviews. Additional material includes drafts of an unpublished book, articles and papers based on the revision, correspondence regarding the revision, and miscellaneous writings by internees and other researchers regarding the internment.
