Community publications

The Japanese American press provided a vital sense of community. Numerous newspapers were published in cities and towns up and down the West Coast. Seattle alone boasted two Japanese-language dailies and an English-language weekly for the community. The Japanese American Courier, which appeared in Seattle in 1928, was the first English-language Japanese American newspaper in the nation.
