    Biography

    Guy Wellington Cook was Vice Principal (1942-44), and subsequently Principal (1944-45), of Tri-State High School at the Tule Lake Relocation Center (Newell, Calif.). His wife, Marguerite, was a seventh grade English and Social Studies teacher in the Center junior high school. The Cooks collected materials pertaining to Tule Lake and other relocation centers throughout World War II. They also corresponded with teachers and internees who left the Tule Lake in the course of the War.

    Scope and Content

    This collection contains materials collected by the Cooks during their employment at Tule Lake. Much of the collection focuses on education, although there are also materials of a more general and of a more specifically personal nature. Of particular interest are faculty narratives describing the problems of teaching in a relocation center and student autobiographies chronicling their adjustment to relocation. The collection also contains substantial clippings and report files that document the segregation of "disloyal" Japanese-Americans at Tule Lake, the uprising of 1943, and the repatriation to Japan of "disloyals" following the War. The Cook Collection also contains a small body of materials pertaining to Centers other than Tule Lake (see Index).
