The first WRA document was the first to give an overview of the 10 internment camps. The Quarterly Report was the second (of 3) to detail administration of the camps - employment, education, agriculture and industry, health and sanitation, community government, religious activities, fire protection and recreation, and touches on what was being done to “conserve” the property evacuees had left behind. That the report was not intended for public consumption was evident not only by the shoddy production but also by the frank discussion of “Internal Security”, including “incidents” at Poston, Arizona and Manzanar, California, in which some “radical” internees had “revolted” again their military captors. The flimsy Bibliography, supplemented later in the War by 1943-1944 updates is an interesting compilation of public writings about Japanese-Americans in books and periodicals that appeared before and after Pearl Harbor and the evacuation period, including the usual paranoid and racist commentary, but also a surprising number of literal critiques of the Internment.
