The Kaneji and Sally (Fujii) Domoto collection consists mostly of correspondence to Kaneji Domoto from his wife Sally, and his sisters Wakako and Yuriko. The letters primarily date between 1942 and 1952, when Kaneji was on the East Coast looking for work and his family was held at Amache, and after WWII when his family settled in New York. Before the outbreak of WWII Kaneji Domoto studied architecture and landscape design at UC Berkeley and was a fellow at Taliesin under Frank Lloyd Wright in the 1939, and assisted in the creation of the Japanese Exhibit at the 1939 New York World Fair.
