Poston Chronicle

The Poston Chronicle was published in the Poston (Colorado River) concentration camp, Arizona, from May 1942 to September 1945. The newspaper was staffed mainly by camp inmates who wrote the articles, set the type, and printed the final copies. Poston consisted of three separate sections, designated Poston I, II and III. As a result, many of the Chronicle's issues contain pages contributed by the different sections.
