Series 8: Source Material , circa 1940-circa 2005
0.7 Linear feet
Boxes 6-7, 11

Source material refers to clippings and other items that Yoshida gathered, usually from magazines and comic books, and probably intended to use for his art work. For example, there are many small clippings from comics meant for Yoshida's collages. Other source material includes postcards, mail order catalogs, magazines, product labels, advertisements, children's coloring books, empty papers bags, and wallpaper samples. Also included are assorted objects such as hairpins, buttons, and hairnets in their original packaging.
This series is arranged alphabetically.
This series has been selectively digitized. Due to the volume of source material and the fact that folders often contain multiple envelopes of tiny cutouts, only a small sampling of materials from several folders were digitized. The children's activity books and comic books have only had their covers digitized.
