Tazuma Collection

English and French translations of the Japanese passport belonging to Bunshiro Tazuma. The Issei, mostly young Japanese males, began immigrating to the United States in the late 1800s. Many were farmers or students with dreams of returning to Japan after making their fortunes in America. The vast majority never realized this dream.

c. 1917
