Chung Collection - Japanese Canadian materials

This collection brings together archival material and publications that relate to Japanese-Canadians in 20th century Canada prior to WWII. Included are publications created by Japanese-Canadians: a 1939 directory for Japanese persons living in British Columbia, a 1932 pamphlet elucidating the causes of the Sino-Japanese War, and a 1940 pamphlet published by the Canadian Japanese Association with the intent to promote a more inclusive attitude towards Japanese-Canadians. Other material produced by non-Japanese exemplifies the discrimination against the Japanese-Canadian population.
