Dave Tatsuno Collection (91.74.1-8)

Licensing

Dave Tatsuno (1913-2006) was well known in the Bay Area Nikkei community for operating the Nichi Bei Bussan stores in San Jose and San Francisco, California. His interest in making movies began in 1936 and resulted in this collection of home movies, consisting of eight 8mm films (3 color and 5 black & white) and one 16mm color film. The film depicting Topaz concentration camp is on the National Film Registry, one of two home movies on the Registry and the only such movie originating from an American ethnic community. The Tatsuno home movie collection documents activities in Topaz concentration camp and pre-WWII festivals, sporting events, family outings, holidays, celebrations, and the family business - the Nichi Bei Bussan.
