The Japanese American Newspapers Collection contains 18.6 linear feet of publications from fifteen different Japanese American newspaper titles dating from the mid-1940s to 2014. The collection includes extended runs of Hokubei Shimpo and New York Nichibei, as well as short runs of regional papers and international editions of Japanese newspapers from the late twentieth century. The material in this collection dates from 1946 to 2014, and offers insight into the concerns of the Japanese American community, including civil rights, LGBTQ issues, and women’s rights. The collection’s materials are sourced from the Kida Collection, the Takako Wada Papers, and a donation from Stan Kanzaki.
