The Yamano Japanese Internment collection contains materials pertaining to the life of Japanese Americans before, during,
and after World War II. Many of the materials in the collection document their time in relocation and internment facilities.
Sakae and Matsuzo Yamano emigrated from Japan to California in the 1920’s and 1930’s. They were interned at Granada Relocation
Center and Tule Lake Relocation Center during World War II and remained interned until 1946. The collection contains photographs
of family and friends, documents from internment facilities, and family portraits.
