    Descriptive info: About.. Facility Rentals.. FAQs.. ABOUT.. Mission.. The mission of the Japanese American Museum of San Jose (JAMsj) is to collect, preserve and share Japanese American art, history and culture with an emphasis on the greater Bay Area.. History.. Established in November of 1987, JAMsj grew out of a 1984-86 research project on Japanese American farmers in the Santa Clara Valley.. The farming project collected family histories, historical photographs, private memoirs and other unpublished documents and led to the development of a curriculum package on Japanese American history, which was adopted for use by the San Jose Unified and Eastside Union High School Districts.. JAMsj's workshop on developing family histories provided documentary materials and photos included in the award-winning book.. Japanese Legacy: Farming and Community Life in California's Santa Clara Valley.. (1985) co-authored by Timothy J.. Lukes, Ph.. D.. and Gary Y.. Okihiro, Ph.. The museum started in an  ...   North Fifth Street.. In October, 2010, the museum reopened after an ambitious remodeling and expansion project..

Lasting Stories is a digital visual history project that documents the starting or restarting of  ...   Japanese American Resource Center).. In collaboration with three other museums, we documented the resettlement experiences of Japanese Americans after their incarceration in internment camps--roughly the time period between 1945 and 1965--in four different geographic areas: Chicago, Los Angeles, the Santa Clara Valley, and San Diego.. JAMsj was in charge of documenting resettlement in the Santa Clara Valley.. Within the span of about 50 years, this valley went from being largely agricultural to being the center of information technology.. For demographic reasons like this, the Santa Clara Valley was a particularly interesting region to research.. Through community forums, JAMsj solicited input from the community as to the kind of information we should strive to gather from our interviews.. Based on that input, the REgenerations team selected 10 individuals who resettled in the Santa Clara Valley and who, in our opinion, represented a good cross-section of the Japanese American community in this region.. In June of 1997, the REgenerations team completed its final interview of the first phase of this project.. To celebrate this accomplishment and to honor our 10 distinguished interviewees, JAMsj threw a party at our new, permanent home at 535 North Fifth Street.. JAMsj hopes to continue documenting Japanese American history in the Santa Clara Valley through oral history.. We believe ordinary citizens possess an enormous amount of valuable historical knowledge, not perhaps, from having studied history but from having lived it.. If you would like to participate in this or other oral history projects, either as an interviewer, transcriber, videographer, or interviewee, please contact us..
