Immediate Source of Acquisition

The George Yuzawa Papers were donated by Gene Yuzawa and Patricia Yuzawa-Rubin in 2009. The accession numbers associated with this collection are 2008.029, 2009.044, and 2011.049.

Processing Information

Photographs and artwork were separated from this collection during processing and were established as a separate collection, the George Yuzawa Photographs (PHOTOS 278). In 2013, the photograph and artwork collection was reincorporated into the George Yuzawa Papers (TAM 442).

In 2021, narrative description was edited to more accurately describe the forced removal and incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II. Select creator-supplied titles containing harmfully euphemistic language regarding Japanese Americans during WWII were identified in this collection, but have been retained to convey important contextual information regarding time and place in which the documents and titles were created.
