Immediate Source of Acquisition

Donated by Leyla Mei on behalf of the Asia Pacific Forum in 2014. The accession number associated with this gift is 2013.001.

Processing Information

All materials were removed from hanging files in which they were originally received, but remain (with a few exceptions) in their original file folders. These folders were then re-boxed into archival records boxes.

In 2021, creator-supplied titles containing harmfully euphemistic language regarding the forced removal and incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II were identified, but have been retained to convey important contextual information regarding time and place in which the documents and titles were created.


No materials were separated from this collection.


Most of the information for this guide was drawn from an historical sketch written by Andrew Hsiao and Leyla Mei, Asia Pacific Forum Collective members, that was cited in the description of the records on the webpage for the Asian/Pacific American Documentary Heritage Archives Survey. The Asian/Pacific American Documentary Heritage Archives Survey was a joint project of the Tamiment Library and Robert F. Wagner Archives and the Asian/Pacific/American Institute, both of New York University, carried out in 2011.
