0.9 Linear Feet
Box 17, 21

Four scrapbooks were compiled by Kay Sekimachi and date from 1937 to 1944. Loose material was likely intended to be included in a later volume or added to the fourth scrapbook. Scrabooks 1-3 contain printed materials such as valentines and images of food, babies and children, birds, and clothing as well as notes and sketches by Sekimachi. The fourth scrapbook dates from the end of Sekimachi's internment at Topaz and later relocation to Cincinnati, Ohio. The scrapbook includes sketches and printed material concerning local and global current events. Loose material includes employment and relocation assignments, notes, church bulletins, maps, clippings and other printed materials, and sketches.
