Two new collections from the Utah State Historical Society

The Mountain West Digital Library recently added two great collections from the Utah State Historical Society.

The KUED Topaz Relocation Center Residents Collection contains images of Japanese Americans in the Topaz Internment Camp in Delta, Utah.

This collection joins many other digital collections the Mountain West Digital Library has on the topic of the Japanese American experience in the Western States. DPLA recently highlighted some of the many digital resources available for educators teaching the topic of Japanese American internment.

The Al Morton Collection 1930s-1950s features historic photographs of scenic Utah landscapes and national parks, which helped support the early tourism industry in Utah.
