Topaz Times

1942 - 1945

The Topaz Times, September 17, 1942 to March 30, 1945, was published by Japanese-Americans held at the Topaz internment camp near Delta, Utah, during World War II. It was edited by Taro Katayama, who had published the Tanforan Totalizer at the Tanforan Assembly Center in San Bruno, California, from May 15 to October 13, 1942. The Times continued publishing until August 31, 1945, and the camp formally closed in October 1945.

We extend our thanks to Steve Koga for the loan of the original newspapers for scanning.
