The Manzanar Committee is rarely mentioned in the secondary literature. Since Sue Embrey has been considered The Manzanar Committee, once even being called the “Messiah of Manzanar,”1 I have relied on Sue to recount its history in obtaining both state landmark and national historical site recognition.2 Her account is augmented by comments of others who were involved with the Manzanar Committee.
- Concentration Camp
- Economic Greed
- National Park Service
- State Landmark
- Japanese Ancestry
