Lot Details
JAPANESE-AMERICAN INTERNMENT CAMPS.
SATOW, KATSUICHI. 1896-1992. A large group of diaries kept by a Japanese-American pastor interned at a War Relocation Authority camp during World War II, 38 bound volumes, 140 x 65 mm each, 1938-79 (without the years 1941-42, 1962, and 1975), written in Japanese, years inked to spines, chips to a few spine ends.

The Reverend Katsuichi Satow was a pastor at the Japanese Congregational Church in Pasadena, California, when, in 1942, he and his family were relocated to the Gila River Relocation Center in Arizona. During his detention he served as pastor to the camp congregation. The diaries from 1943 and 1944 bear Satow's ownership stamp at the front, and are marked "Rivers, Arizona," the site of the camp. Also included are a small, red letter New Testament, and a photograph of Satow's son with a troop of boy scouts at the internment camp.
