Dear Mr. Bush,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
If he was a civilian employee of the War Relocation Authority, we suggest that you begin your research by requesting a copy of John Crow’s Official Personnel File (OPF). OPFs and medical information for individuals who worked for the U.S. government in a civilian capacity before 1952 are in the custody of the National Archives at St. Louis (RL-SL). Please email RL-SL via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the full name used during Federal employment, date of birth, Social Security Number (if applicable), name and location of the employing Federal agency, beginning and ending dates of Federal Service. For more information, the web site is https://www.archives.gov/st-louis/opf.
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 11 series of textual records in the Records of the War Relocation Authority (Record Group 210) that pertain to Tule Lake. For more information about these records, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) at email@example.com.
We also located 3 series of photographs in Record Group 210 that relate to Tule Lake. Some of these photographs have been digitized and may be accessed via the Catalog. For information about the non-digitized records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Still Picture (RDSS) at firstname.lastname@example.org and their web site is https://www.archives.gov/dc-metro/college-park/photographs-dc.html.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RL-SL, RDT1 & RDSS. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
