    • Nippu Jiji / Hawaii Times / Yasutaro Soga archival collection

  • This collection primarily consists of correspondence to and from the Nippu Jiji (a Hawaii newspaper primarily published in the Japanese language) during and shortly after World War II. The collection of letters serve to document some of the restrictions the Nippu Jiji encountered during WWII, and also documents the newspaper’s encouragement to its readers to support the American cause in the war. This collection also includes a few documents relating to Yasutaro Soga (the editor and owner of the Nippu Jiji) prior to his arrest on December 7, 1941, which demonstrate how he was a prominent leader in the Japanese/Japanese-American community in Hawaii.
