Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Consists of Uchida's correspondence, writings, and professional files, along with a small amount of personal and family papers, providing insight into the life of a successful and distinguished author, as well as her experiences as a Japanese-American growing up in Berkeley, Calif., and internment camps during the war years. Uchida's correspondence chiefly concerns business with publishers and other professionals in the literary publishing trade, and includes a large amount of fan mail. Her writings contain manuscripts of both published and unpublished works, including books, short stories, folktales, articles, and poetry. Her professional papers contain biographical and autobiographical information, as well as her bibliographies, awards, notes, and transcripts for appearances and speeches, interviews, and other professional activities.<lb/>Uchida's personal papers contain writings she did as a child, with other memorabilia, as well as diaries and journals, personal documents and miscellaneous papers, as well as memorabilia from several memorial services and exhibits held after her death. The Uchida family papers include correspondence among the immediate family, along with a few papers of her parents, Takashi ("Dwight") and Iku Uchida. Of special interest are those materials concerning relocation and redress, which include correspondence written by family members during their internment, scrapbooks, diaries, drawings and watercolors, and miscellaneous publications regarding internment.
