The Kooskia Internment Camp Scrapbook is a hand-made manuscript consisting of 148 photographs (and two drawings) which document the lives of Japanese American men incarcerated during the camp's two years of operation (May 1943 - May 1945). The camp was located in a remote area of north central Idaho, 30 miles from the town of Kooskia and administered by the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) for the U.S. Department of Justice.
