The Min & Uhachi Tamesa Collection consists of correspondence, photographs, documents, and ephemera related to the lives of Uhachi Tamesa and his son Min Tamesa. Much of the collection documents Min's life as a draft resister, his imprisonment at Leavenworth Penitentiary, and Uhachi's support of his son during that period. Also, found in the collection are materials documenting Uhachi's life in Washington state before and after the war. The physical collection resides at the Wing Luke Museum in Seattle, Washington.
