Description

THE UCLA ASIAN AMERICAN STUDIES CENTER & UCLA LIBRARY SPECIAL COLLECTIONS INVITE YOU TO THE INAUGURAL RECEPTION FOR

The Jack and Aiko Herzig Papers

Featuring

Aiko Herzig-Yoshinaga



Wednesday, October 26, 2016

11:00 am to 1:00 pm

UCLA

Charles E. Young Research Library

Main Conference Room


The UCLA Asian American Studies Center and UCLA Charles E. Young Research Library Special Collections are honored to host an inaugural public reception to celebrate the release of the Herzig Papers to researchers, community, and students.


The program will feature Ms. Aiko Herzig-Yoshinaga, who, with her late husband John ‘Jack’ Herzig, developed an impressive personal repository of historic documents, articles, legal memoranda, and correspondence. Their discoveries aided in redress for thousands of Americans illegally incarcerated during World War II and the vacating of wartime convictions of Japanese Americans in the Supreme Court Coram Nobis cases. UCLA faculty research scholars will also comment on the collection’s historic significance and the Herzigs’ dedicated research contributions.


The Herzig Papers serves to enhance public knowledge about the unjust mass removal and incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II and offers invaluable lessons to anyone vitally concerned with issues of social justice and constitutionality in America.


Light refreshments will be served. For questions, please contact 310/825-2974.

Parking is available in Structures 3 and 5 on the north side of the UCLA campus. Short-term parking (cash or credit card) can be purchased at self-service pay stations at both lots.
