In the last two months of 2012 Densho published 42 new articles to our public encyclopedia about the Japanese American experience during World War II, including:

Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) contributed by Professor Cherstin M. Lyon, California State University, San Bernardino

Custodial detention / A-B-C list contributed by Professor Tetsuden Kashima, University of Washington

Funding for the encyclopedia is provided in part by the Japanese American Confinement Sites Grant Program, administered by the National Park Service. The encyclopedia will expand to over 1,000 articles when completed in 2014.
