This collection consists of documents from the personal collection of Mr. Shosuke Sasaki, an Issei who immigrated to the U.S. in 1919. During World War II he was incarcerated in Minidoka, Idaho, and later worked for Standard & Poor's financial institution for many years. His papers document his work with Minidoka's Welfare Department, as well as his prominent role in formulating the "Seattle Plan" for redress in the early 1970s. Mr. Sasaki also led an effort to eliminate the perjorative use of the word "Jap" in print media.
