Scope and content
Series documents Kogawa’s social and business activities as a writer, consisting of personal and business correspondence with publishers, associations, readers, and greeting cards from friends and family. Associations represented in the records include the Holy Cross Japanese Canadian Anglican Church, the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, the Writer’s Union of Canada, and American Biographical Institutes, Inc., among others. Correspondence is from Japan and across Canada, mainly from Toronto and B.C. Correspondence is occasionally interleaved with pamphlets of her work, publications related to her participation in literary, cultural and public events. Miscellaneous records include newspaper clippings, donation slips and some notes. The arrangement reflects the creator’s original order.
