Purchase Monitoring Equipment and Storage Furniture and Materials to Preserve Historical Society's Collections

To support: Purchasing environmental monitoring equipment, storage furniture, and preservation materials to rehouse and preserve collections of photographs, documents, medals, uniforms, weapons, furniture, and artwork documenting the internment of Japanese American civilians and their military contributions during the Second World War.

The National Japanese American Historical Society (NJAHS) requests a grant of $6,000 to support short term remedial preservation activities for its World War II collections. The grant will support purchase of: a) storage furniture and preservation supplies. b) environmental monitoring equipment. The project focuses on its Military and Camp Collections. The Military Collection contains some 17,000 items related to the World War II experience of Japanese Americans in the US Army. These items serve as the tangible legacy of the 100th Infantry Battalion /442nd Regimental Combat Team, the most decorated military unit in World War II; and the soldier linguists of the Military Intelligence Service, who participated in every major campaign of the Pacific War. The Camp Collection contains nearly 5,000 items related to the World War II eviction of Japanese Americans and Japanese Latin Americans from their communities and their incarceration in US confinement camps.
