United States actions in the first quarter of the 20th Century with regard to Japanese immigration and exclusion.
An inventory of a series of pamphlets published from 1906 through 1925 focused on the presence of Japanese in America, the perception by some that Japan was taking steps to take over America, the great lengths gone to deprive Japanese residing in the United States of land either by purchase or lease and even citizenship, the depiction of Japanese as inferior humans in terms of intellect and morals standing, agreement and laws enacted to limit the ability of Japanese to participate in the economy, anti-Japanese organizations, speeches before various legislative bodies in opposition to the Japanese, Japanese responses to the anti-Japanese publications, responses by various religious groups on the subject of race and equality, purported efforts to smuggle Japanese into the country through Mexico, competition created between White landowners and Japanese farmers and more. The pamphlets, not in any particular order, were bound and retained by the California State Archives.
