Scope and Content Note

This series contains printed materials documenting Emi Kida's personal interests and activities as well as some of the cultural events she may have attended as a reporter for the New York Nichibei. The printed materials date between 1964 and 2002, with the majority from the 1990s. Included are newsletters and other publications of the Japanese American United Church and the Doshisha Women's College. Exhibition catalogues and Stagebills document some of the cultural events Emi may have covered for the  New York Nichibei, including concerts at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. Other organizations and institutions represented in this series include the Japan Society, the Japanese American Association of New York, the Japanese American Social Services, Inc., and Oberlin College. The Doshisha Women's College files contain two small volumes written by Emi's lifelong friend, Asae Konokawa. Konokawa's writings record the role of her husband, Seiichi Konokawa, in the establishment of the  Hokubei Shimpo; her work as a reporter for the newspaper; and the beginning of the Kidas' relationship.
