Series III: Audio/Visual Materials

Scope and Content Note

This series contains cassette tapes documenting the oral history of Shimanouchi-Lederer during her early childhood days, her family's forced removal and incarceration during World War II, and her professional career as a manager for a Hollywood production company, press agent, and as founding director of JASSI. The transcripts accompanying the audio tapes are part of Series I.

The videos are recordings of broadcasts that include Shimanouchi-Lederer on academic panels discussing Social Justice for Asian Americans, and a Japanese televised special on her brother, Henry Toshiro Shimanouchi. Other recordings document JASSI fundraising concerts held in the early 1990s.
