Consists chiefly of a 1981-1982 revision of her Tule Lake field notes, written for the Japanese American Evacuation and Resettlement
Study in 1944-1945, while Wax was at the Relocation Center near Newell, Calif. The revision, funded by a grant from the Rockefeller
Foundation, includes a first and final draft, plus interviews conducted in 1981-1982 with former internees at Tule Lake, and
longitudinal oral histories (Wax's term) created from the field notes and interviews. Additional material includes drafts
of an unpublished book, articles and papers based on the revision, correspondence regarding the revision, and miscellaneous
writings by internees and other researchers regarding the internment.
