On a warm August afternoon, in the time-honored tradition of the summer rerun, we thought we’d share some of our favorite “From the Archive” articles that are available on our website. These monthly articles feature photos, documents, and interview clips from Densho’s wealth of primary resources in the free Digital Archive.

One “From the Archive” article on photography by Ansel Adams and Dorothea Lange inspired a student activity in a curriculum unit we share with teachers. We hope you enjoy reading “Controlling the Historical Record: Photographs of the Japanese American Incarceration.”
