Japanese-Americans in the Relocation Centers

The University of Arizona Press
This important final report of the War Relocation Authority, written in 1946 and now released in book form with a comprehensive introduction by Edward H. Spicer, describes the growth and changes in the community life and how attitudes of Japanese-American relocatees and WRA administrators evolved, adjusted, and affected one another on political, social, and psychological levels.
Edward H. Spicer, anthropology professor at the University of Arizona, was community analyst at the Poston, Arizona, Relocation Center and later headed the Community Analysis Section of the War Relocation Authority in Washington, D.C., at the time the original report was printed.

Katherine Luomala, anthropology professor at the University of Hawaii, was assistant to the head of Community Analysis and detailed to the West Coast for field work.

Asael T. Hansen, anthropology and sociology professor at the University of Alabama, was community analyst at Heart Mountain Center, Wyoming.

Marvin K. Opler, anthropology professor at the State University of new York at Buffalo, was community analyst at Tule Lake Center, California.
