Table of contents What's This?
Description
The collection contains surveys, correspondence, administrative papers, and mailing lists created by and related to E.O 9066 Inc. from 1942 to 1994. The materials relate to the push by E.O 9066 Inc. for redress, and include primarily responses to a 1975 survey about redress (some with comments).
Background
E.O. 9066 was formed as an outcome of a reparations panel sponsored by the San Fernando Valley Chapter and the Pacific Southwest District of the Japanese American Citizens League on April 26, 1975. The nonprofit’s purposes were threefold: 1) to educate the public concerning the evacuation of persons of Japanese ancestry at the start of World War II, 2) to formulate and propose legislation to compensate those affected by Executive Order 9066, 3) to seek executive, congressional, or judicial authority for the Supreme Court to review the constitutionality of the evacuation order, including a review of the Korematsu and Hirabayashi cases.
